The earthquake rattled Philadelphia and registered a magnitude of 4.6, according to earthquake detector website CSEM-EMSC. It was earlier recorded at 5.1.

Citizens from major cities including Philadelphia, New York, Washington DC, Baltimore and Atlantic City recorded shaking.

The quake hit an area in Delaware around 50 miles from Philadelphia at around 9.47pm GMT. It hit at a shallow depth of less than five miles.

Testimonies flooded in to CSEM EMSC from civilians shaken up by the earthquake.

CSEM-EMSC estimated 20 million people live in the ‘felt area’, where shaking was felt in the earthquake.

One person in Bridgeton said: “The whole house was shaking.”

Another person in Middletown said: “It felt and sounded like very deep thunder. It was scary to say the least.”

A third in Broomall said: “Dog freaked out! We thought the wind was shaking the house but then realized there was no wind.

“We were feeling the shake and hearing a rumble. Lasted about 20 seconds.”
