Buffalo earthquake: Magnitude 3.8 quake shakes western New York


A magnitude 3.8 earthquake shook the Buffalo, New York area early Monday.

The quake struck around 6:15 a.m. and was centered just over a mile northeast of West Seneca at a depth of about 1.9 miles, the US Geological Survey said.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries, the Buffalo office of the National Weather Service said.

The quake comes weeks after the region suffered a deadly winter storm that left 39 people dead in Erie County and the city of Buffalo buried in nearly 52 inches of snow. The county also issued a “code blue” warning last week and opened three heated shelters as dangerously cold temperatures gripped the northeast.

CNN affiliate WKBW received reports that people in the area were feeling the rumble on Monday, including across the border in Ontario, Canada.
