A mild 3.4 earthquake rocked Pennsylvania today; the quake was centered roughly 11 miles southwest of Mifflintown, Pennsylvania. Shaking was reported in Harrisburg, Hershey, State College, Altoona, and Lancaster. 975 people have used the USGS “Did You Feel It?” website to report what impacts this quake had on their home/business.
The quake struck at around 8:30pm this evening. While this was the largest of eight earthquakes recorded in the state of Pennsylvania over the last year, stronger quakes have struck in the past. As an example, a 4.6 magnitude struck Berks County in 1994.
The Pennsylvania quake comes days after a 4.0 rocked the Cleveland, Ohio area on June 10.
