       Magnitude-4.4 earthquake strikes Delaware

A rare quake jolted the Mid-Atlantic region of the East Coast on Thursday evening, prompting some to flee offices and homes, but causing no serious damage or injuries. On Twitter, #earthquake was trending shortly after the tremor began near rush hour. "Anyone sustaining serious damage of an emergency nature to a building or home should call their local 911 center to report it".

But according to ABC7 in NY, people felt it around the NY metropolitan area, while CBS Baltimore reported that people felt it around "Baltimore, Jessup, Pasadena, Federal Hill and other locations in Maryland".

It was followed up ten minutes later by a less powerful 5.0 aftershock in the same area, the survey said.

Thursday's quake marks the first time the region was hit by a minor quake since a stronger 5.8 magnitude quake struck on August 23, 2011. Workers at the statehouse in Dover streamed into the streets after the quake to see what happened.

Paul Caruso is a geophysicist with the USGS's quake information center in Colorado.

"I was sitting in bed watching TV and I felt the bed shaking and it was pretty scary", said Rebecca from Dover. Carberry, who is from the West Coast, said she told co-workers, "I'm pretty sure this is an natural disaster".

Caruso said he didn't expect any significant damage, given the small size of the quake. That natural disaster caused major government facilities to evacuate, and also caused damage to the Washington Monument.
