The epicenter was northeast of Lebanon, New Jersey, about 80 kilometers west of New York City, according to the USGS.

The mild earthquake was shallow, about 5 kilometers below the surface, so residents of the affected areas could easily feel the tremors. Initial reports indicated that tremors were widely felt in New York City, Philadelphia and Washington.
