Delaware

The University found itself taking after the typical James Bond martini order — shaken, not stirred —  when minor tremors were felt on campus on Thursday afternoon.

The tremors were produced by an earthquake of a preliminary magnitude of 4.4 centered about ten miles from Dover, Del. Initially the U.S. Geological Survey reported the magnitude to of the quake as 5.1, before later revising it to a 4.4. The earthquake struck at 4:47 p.m.

Students on campus reported feeling the tremors, and some also noticed an impact off campus at 693 Alexander Rd. According to an article by the Office of Communications, University officials checked the buildings where the tremors were reported, including Nassau Hall, Morrison Hall, New South Building, Stanhope Hall, and the Arts Tower at the Lewis Arts complex. 

Twitter users, including history professor Kevin Kruse, also reported feeling the earthquake in Princeton. West Windsor police chief Robert Garofalo issued an alert saying that a minor earthquake was reported in the area and that he “personally felt it.” 

Unlike your typical 007 outing, however, no damage was reported.
