WESTCHESTER COUNTY, New York (WABC) -- A 2.2 magnitude earthquake rattled some Westchester County residents awake early Friday morning.
The earthquake happened around 2:00 a.m. and the U.S. Geological Survey put the epicenter of the quake just south of Hastings-on-Hudson, roughly at the site of the Lenoir Preserve in Yonkers.
People are reporting that they felt it as far north as Danbury, Connecticut, and also in the Bronx and northeast New Jersey.
One woman in Englewood described what she felt.
"I assumed that maybe it was some trucks passing, but literally sitting here, I'm like, the ground shook too much, the house shook too much," said Erica Diggs, an Englewood resident.
Leonardo Seeber, a seismologist at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, said the quake was unusual because it occurred beneath a tectonic plate rather than along plate boundaries.
He points out there is a substantial fault line a few miles away in Dobbs Ferry.
No damage was reported.
There are fault lines located in Ramapo and Manhattan.
