A small earthquake that hit the northern part of New York on Monday was felt in Lake George and Warrensburg, approximately 100 miles from the epicenter. Anyone in those areas get shaken up a bit this morning?
According to NewYorkUpstate.com, the earthquake which measured 3.3 on the Richter scale struck at around 5:38 am.
As of right now, there are no reports of any sustained damage, but a few hundred people did report some 'shaking' including some in Warrensburg and Lake George.
The earthquake's epicenter was said to be in Ormstown, Quebec which is approximately one hour south of Montreal and about 3 hours north of Albany. According to scholastic.com a 3.3 on the Richter scale would cause someone to 'notice this quake if you are sitting still, or upstairs in a house.' Hanging objects like a lighting fixture may 'swing' a bit.
