For the third time in three weeks, a small earthquake has rattled an area of north-central New Jersey.

No damage or injuries were reported from the 2.3 magnitude quake, which was recorded shortly before 1:42 a.m. Wednesday.

Scott DiGiralomo, a coordinator with the county's office of emergency management, says the epicenter was just over a mile outside Dover. It was felt mostly by people in Denville and Randolph.

The quake is the third to hit Morris County since Feb. 2.

A 3.0 magnitude earthquake rattled windows and alarmed residents on Feb. 2. That quake was centered in Rockaway, Dover and Morris Plains.

A 2.2 magnitude quake on Valentine's Day shook residents in Boonton and neighboring Montville.

2.2? 2.3? How can you feel things that small? The region has much worse quakes to worry about. (http://www.livescience.com/environment/080821-new-york-earthquakes.html)
