Did you feel it?
A minor 1.9-magnitude earthquake struck in the Hartford area at 1:14 a.m., Friday, March 5, or to be more specific about 4.8 miles west in the West Hartford area, said Robert Sanders, a geophysicist with the National Earthquake Center.
The depth was 2.2 kilometers.
According to Sanders, minor fault lines run throughout the northeast, and earthquakes happen on a weekly basis, but only a few are strong enough to be felt.
"Most of the quakes are very low in magnitude, and no one feels them," Sanders said. "They tend to be felt more in larger cities with denser populations.
If you did feel the quake, the center has a reporting system that keeps track of quakes throughout the U.S.
As of 9 a.m., 22 people had reported feeling the quake.
