Black Friday, Cyber Monday Followed by Earthquake Tuesday in NYC


A 3.9 magnitude earthquake struck 79 miles off off the coast of Long Island on Tuesday spurring dozens “two or three” calls to the local police precinct from town residents wondering what had happened.

“It was a short rumble, a really low rumble,” said Eric Weaver, who felt the quake while in the living room of his Smithtown home.

“That low rumble is very distinctive,” said the 56-year-old unemployed science teacher, who has lived through multiple California quakes. “It was short though, it wasn’t very long.”

Panic did not ensue.
