The Port Authority Transit Corp., which operates a rapid transit route between Pennsylvania and New Jersey, suspended service in the aftermath of the quake. New Jersey Transit alerted riders of 20-minute delays due to bridge inspections following the earthquake. A 4.1-magnitude earthquake struck the tristate area in 2017, centered near Little Creek, Delaware, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The earthquake ruptured on the Ramapo fault system, Simons said. “This shaking was violent, strong and long.”Some video captured the moment of the earthquake, including one coffee shop in New Jersey.
