The earthquake struck southeast of East Freehold.
East Coast earthquakes are far less common than in the West, but they tend to be felt over a broad area.
“The waves are able to reverberate and travel pretty happily out for miles,” said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough.
The USGS said the earthquake was centered 1.25 miles south, southeast of the center of East Freehold. It hit just before 2 a.m.
There have been no reports of damage.
