DE 4.1-magnitude quake rattles Mid-Atlantic region

Posted December 01, 2017

An quake centered 6 miles east-northeast of Dover, Delaware, hit the Mid-Atlantic region late Thursday afternoon, shaking buildings and people, but causing no apparent damage.

The quake struck at a shallow depth of 10km (6.2 miles), some 60km (37 miles) from the city of Kerman, which has a population of over 800,000, including suburbs.

The U.S. Geological Service reported intensity levels - a different measurement than magnitude - ranging from 3 (weak) to 5 (moderate) throughout Delaware.

The natural disaster hit at 4:47 p.m.

There have been no immediate reports of damage or injury.

The track, known for its Miles the Monster mascot and its reputation as one of NASCAR's toughest venues, responded to the natural disaster with trademark bravado in a tweet.

Thursday's quake was felt as far north as NYC and as far south as the D.C. area.

It caused damage to public buildings, pipes and monuments, most notably the National Cathedral and the Washington Monument.
