The quake was recorded just before 7:30 p.m. The seismic activity had a depth of about 2.0 kilometers, according to the USGS.

There have been no reports of injuries or damage.

No one has reported feeling the quake and it is unlikely anyone will report feeling it. Earthquakes of such a small magnitude are very difficult to feel.
