TUCKERTON, N.J. — A small earthquake rattled parts of southern New Jersey Wednesday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the 2.4 magnitude quake occurred just before 8 a.m. about two miles from Tuckerton, New Jersey in Ocean County and about 15 miles away from Atlantic City. 

Roughly 100 people reported feeling the earthquake, with most of the reports coming from nearby Little Egg Harbor Township.

The earthquake is the first one reported in New Jersey in more than six months. A 2.1 magnitude quake was reported in western New Jersey near Pennsylvania in December.

Light shaking was felt, but there were no reports of injuries or damage.
