New York City was rocked by a 4.8-magnitude earthquake Friday morning. In addition to New York City, New Jersey was also hit by the quake.

Parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts also felt the effects of the quake.

According to the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Centre, the earthquake occurred at exactly 10:23 a.m., about 16 kilometers northwest of Bridgewater. In the process, the quake shook skyscrapers and several buildings across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, report the AP and Variety.

Although 4.8 is usually considered moderate, all indications point to it being “one of the biggest quakes ever to hit New York City”.
