According to the US Geological Survey, a small earthquake struck areas of Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island on Sunday mornings.
Geological Survey Agency said the quake had a preliminary magnitude of 4.0.
The earthquake, which occurred around 09:10, had an epicenter at Buzzards Bay, Mass., Which is about 50 miles east of Providence, RI
There were no reports of damage or injury.
Preliminary reports to the Geological Survey said it felt as far away as Long Island Sound, said Paul Caruso, a geophysicist at the agency.
“We would not expect significant damage from this quake,” said Caruso. “Earthquakes in this area are often felt very far away because the rocks in this area are very adjacent, very old, they transmit very good energy from the earthquake.”
There have been 26 earthquakes in southern New England since 1963, he said, but this is one of the biggest.
