No, that wasn’t Santa and Rudolph on the roof, in town for an early visit.
A magnitude 4.4 earthquake with its epicenter about 100 miles south of Saucon Valley in central Delaware was felt Thursday afternoon by some local residents, but not by others.
Channel 6 Action News in Philadelphia reported that the 4:47 p.m. temblor’s epicenter was located about six miles east-northeast of Dover, Del., according to the United States Geological Service (USGS), which initially measured it at 5.1 on the Richter scale but quickly revised that number.
Locally, residents from Society Hill in Lower Saucon Township to First Avenue and Spruce Street in Hellertown to Stanley Avenue in Fountain Hill were quick to post on social media that they felt what seemed to be an earthquake.
Others commented that they had not felt a thing.
Did you feel the earthquake? If you did, tell us where you were when you did, and how it felt.
