A small earthquake was recorded in central Pennsylvania Wednesday night, according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

The 3.4 magnitude earthquake happened in Mifflin County in State Game Lands about 11 miles southwest of Mifflintown.

Residents thirty miles away in Huntingdon County felt the ground shake. A few people there even reported that the earthquake shook their house.

6News spoke with Huntingdon County emergency management dispatchers, who also felt the earthquake in downtown Huntingdon.

Earthquakes are not uncommon in Pennsylvania. They are often very weak, and most frequently occur in the southeastern part of the state.

According to the USGS, Wednesday night's quake originated about 18 miles below the earth’s surface.

Earlier this week, a 4.2 earthquake was recorded in Lake Erie just northeast of Cleveland.                                                                                                                                                                                                          https://wjactv.com/news/local/small-earthquake-recorded-in-central-pa

Was working in state college last night.  Closing up the building at 833pm everything did a quick vibrating sound in the shop.  Didnt think anything of it then, but now realize what it was.

Sounds like me a few years ago when we were able to feel the effects of one here in our area. We had some finished welded brackets lined up on a shelf. I was going over some paperwork with a co-worker at a nearby desk when they started shaking. I remember looking at him like what's up with that? But didn't say anything. Later that evening found out it was an earthquake. Don't really think about them here.
