Earthquake Hits East Coast

(Dover, DE) -- The earthquake that hit Dover, Delaware yesterday is being called the biggest to hit the East Coast in six years.

No one was hurt and there was no damage, but people as far away as New York City felt the 4.1 magnitude quake. Some people in the Hudson Valley say they felt the tremors. Earthquakes are rare on the East Coast, but they do happen. In 2011, a 5.8 earthquake hit Virginia, damaging the Washington Monument and National Cathedral.
