The United States Geological Service initially reported that a 5.1 magnitude natural disaster struck Dover, Delaware on Thursday at 4:48 p.m.

The quake was about 6 miles east-northeast of Dover and was registered at a depth of 4 miles.

Reports on the USGS website indicated shaking felt from Queens, New York south to Washington, DC.

The last natural disaster to hit the mid-Atlantic was in 2011, when a 5.8 magnitude quake hit about 90 miles southwest of Washington, with shaking felt across much of the East Coast including here in New England.

The New York City emergency response system sent an alert that no injuries or damage were immediately reported in the city. It was the biggest tremor to strike the East Coast in six years.

Brian Casey, an attorney based in Lake Success, said he felt the temblor in his office building between Marcus Avenue and Union Turnpike shortly before 5 p.m.

The quake jolted the downtown area of the state capital, Dover, sending a handful of lawmakers and workers in the statehouse outdoors to see what happened as area residents gathered for the city's annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony a couple of blocks away.

The 6.0 quake was quickly followed by a 5.0 aftershock slightly closer to Kerman, at the same depth.

Carberry said there were no signs of damage at the base, and no change in operations was expected.

DE was reclassified from being a low seismic risk state to being a medium seismic risk state In 1997 by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
