Small earthquakes rattle NJ town

Posted: Updated:

ROCKAWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Officials say very small earthquakes are to blame for several loud booms that rattled residents in a northern New Jersey town.

A seismologist with the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University in New York says there were three small quakes in Rockaway on Monday.

Won-Young Kim tells The Daily Record of Parsippany (http://dailyre.co/Qg6Xd1 ) the largest was 1.1. Kim also says there's evidence of another earthquake at 1:58 a.m. Wednesday and possibly one at 4 a.m.

Police say the quakes were enough to cause some residents to become nervous and come outside.
