The earthquake didn’t leave any damage, but did rattle windows of homes in Hunterdon County and towns in Eastern Pennsylvania, according to a report published by NJ.com. The U.S. Geological Survey also reported the earthquake and claimed it occurred around 6:55 a.m.

“The actual literal epicenter was the public safety complex,” the Gov. Phil Murphy said at the time, according to NJ.com.
“It sounded like a dump truck being dropped from a few stories up, but about four-five blocks away,” a resident reported on an earthquake-tracking website, according to NJ.com. “It rumbled the floor for about five seconds. I could feel from my feet on the floor and through the seat of the chair.”
