EarthCam captured incredible footage of the Statue of Liberty shaking during the very unexpected 4.8 magnitude earthquake that shook New York City and much of the Northeast United States on Friday, April 5, 2024.

EarthCam captured the moment a 4.8-magnitude earthquake recorded in New Jersey shook residents in surrounding states and New York City on Friday morning.

The epicenter of the quake was in Lebanon, New Jersey and the tremors and aftershocks were felt around the New York City metropolitan area, Philadelphia, and even as far away as Boston. This was the strongest earthquake to hit the area since 1884.
