Minor earthquake strikes Niagara County

A 1.9-magnitude earthquake quietly rumbled in Niagara County on Wednesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake was registered at 7:21 a.m. about a mile south-southwest of the center of Newfane, according to the U.S.G.S. The depth of the quake was about 3 miles below the surface.

The intensity of the quake was so low that it would not be felt by anyone except under "especially favorable conditions," according to the agency. Any earthquake below magnitude 3.0 would fall into that category.
