23 Apr 2017, 3:15 pm

Shortly before 5pm Eastern time, residents in southeastern Pennsylvania felt what appeared to be an earthquake. The quake, which was centered just south of Conestoga in Lancaster County, was felt by many and it didn’t take long for social media to light up with posts about what residents experienced.

As one Twitter user tweeted, “2.7 earthquake….did not expect that here in Lancaster, PA….” That was a common theme Sunday afternoon. Another Twitter user posted, “earthquake in Lancaster PA area. Thought something had exploded in the house.”

The earthquake was initially reported as a 2.7 magnitude earthquake, but that was later revised to a 2.3 magnitude earthquake. No damage or injuries were reported.
