When it rains, yes it can sometime pour but really?!?!?! New Jersey did indeed have an earthquake on Monday – It was a relatively small quake, just a 2.0 magnitude which struck at 1:19 a.m. Monday. But N.J. residents reported hearing a loud boom at the time of the earthquake.
The National Earthquake Information Center reported that some people heard a loud boom and those on upper floors of a home felt shaking or saw objects on walls vibrate. The last earthquake in New Jersey had a 2.2 magnitude and was recorded in February 2010.
