An earthquake shook southern Ocean County on Wednesday morning.
The quake at 7:52 a.m. measured 2.4 on the Richter scale with the epicenter between Tuckerton and Little Egg Harbor, according to the US Geological Survey.
Ocean County Sheriff Mike Mastronardy told New Jersey 101.5 that their dispatch received a call about a house in Little Egg Harbor shaking.
During Gov. Phil Murphy’s coronavirus briefing, State Police Superintendent Pat Callahan said there was no damage or injuries reported from the earthquake. Callahan said the county emergency management made no request for any resources.
Jacqueline Fiore on Meteorologist Dan Zarrow's Facebook page wrote that her house shook but very briefly while Rob Covino reported feeling it in the Manahawkin section of Stafford Township.

NJ's most and least COVID vaccinated towns, by county
New Jersey reported just short of 4 million people fully vaccinated against COVID-19 statewide, heading into the last week of May. So how does that break down across all 21 counties?
And, how can some communities show a vaccination rate of more than 100%, according to state data? Reasons include people who have moved, those who are traveling and not residing at home where the census counted them, students who may select their school residence for vaccination data and people in long-term care (or other facility-based housing) among other reasons, as explained in a footnote on the state COVID dashboard.
