Shallow 6.0 quake strikes eastern Iran: USGS

Shallow 6.0 quake strikes eastern Iran: USGS”

Sgt. Rene Carberry, a spokeswoman at Dover Air Force Base, said people on the military installation felt the tremor; some went outside to see if something had fallen down. According to visitors to the USGS website, the quake was felt as far north as New Milford, Connecticut and as far south as Chesapeake, Virginia.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 4.1 magnitude quake off the DE coastline Thursday afternoon. It was hard to immediately predict if there would be aftershocks, she said.

The station also writes that Paul Caruso, a geophysicist with the USGS, says there is potential for aftershocks. A magnitude 5.8 quake (Mineral, VA 8/2011) is 50.118 times bigger than a magnitude 4.1 natural disaster, but it is 354.813 times stronger (energy release).

Gary Laing, a spokesman for the Delaware Emergency Management Agency, said in an email 30 minutes after the quake that there were no reports of damage. "Usually the largest aftershocks we see in a series is about 1 magnitude smaller than the main quake". That quake was more powerful than this one, with a magnitude of 5.8. Many reports came in along communities along the Delaware River in the southern part of the state including Trenton and Camden.

The largest recorded event in DE occurred in 1973 and had an estimated magnitude of 3.8, according to the University of Delaware's geological survey.

A 2011 Virginia natural disaster, that measured a much larger magnitude 5.8, was felt from North Carolina to even Canada.
