Small Earthquake Shakes Lake George
WARRENSBURG, N.Y. (AP) — Officials say a small earthquake shook homes in the Adirondacks region near Lake George.
United States Geological Survey monitors say the magnitude 2.7 quake happened at a depth of just more than 6 miles near the Warren County town of Warrensburg at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday. Local emergency centers got calls reporting shaking and a rumbling sound, but no damage.
The USGS says New York's Adirondacks region is among the most seismically active in the northeast because it contains a number of faults in the bedrock. Small quakes happen every three or four years. Warrensburg is 53 miles north of Albany and just west of Lake George.
