Quake Map of New England
A relatively minor quake centered beneath the Atlantic to the south of Long Island was felt widely across New Jersey, the lower Hudson River Valley and parts of New England on Tuesday morning.

The 3.9 magnitude quake struck at 10:45 a.m. local time about 80 miles south-southeast of Southhampton, N.Y.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the jolt was the strongest to strike the New York region in 18 years.

Most who felt the shaking said it lasted about five seconds and was accompanied by an audible rumbling.

There were no reports of damage or injuries due to the tremor.
