    Another Earthquake Shakes Delaware

    Delaware has experienced an earthquake for the second time in two weeks, this time Wednesday's quake was not as strong.

    (Published Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017)

    The U.S. Geological Survey says a small earthquake has occurred in Delaware after another happened there nearly two weeks before.

    The USGS says the magnitude 1.2 earthquake occurred Wednesday at 12:45 a.m. roughly 8 miles northeast of Dover. A magnitude 4.1 happened on Nov. 30 roughly 6 miles from the city, south of where Wednesday's was.

    The Wednesday quake had a depth of more than 1.5 miles, while the depth of the November one was more than 6 miles.

    November's tremor may have been the largest earthquake in Delaware since one along the Delaware River near Wilmington in October 1871.
