The depth was 3.1 miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and the agency logged a total of just 11 responses from people who said they felt the quake, CNN reported.
But it couldn't have come at a worse time. The earthquake shook the area shortly after the National Weather Service predicted that another storm will soon hit the areas already stricken by Sandy. According to the National Weather Service, a nor'easter is expected to strike the area by Wednesday, Nov. 7, and could include gusts of wind of up to 55 mph. Buildings and trees weakened by Sandy may be vulnerable to more damage, and efforts to restore electricity could also get stalled as a result, the AP reported.
