Minor earthquake reported in Connecticut

Deep River (AP) — Some residents in southern Connecticut say they were awoken by their homes shaking, and the U.S. Geological Survey confirmed a minor earthquake.

The Geological Survey says a 2.7-magnitude quake was recorded in Deep River shortly after 3 a.m. Thursday. No injuries or damage have been reported.

State police say they received several calls from people who said their homes shook briefly Thursday morning.

Small earthquakes aren't uncommon in Connecticut and the rest of the New England. Last December, a 2.1-magnitude quake was recorded in Groton in southeastern Connecticut.
