A small earthquake shook West Hartford early Friday.
The tremor was only 1.9 magnitude. It was based three kilometers, or less than two miles, southwest of West Hartford, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and it originated from more than a mile below the Earth’s surface.
It shook the ground at 1:14 a.m.
West Hartford police received about 10 calls from residents who heard a bang and felt the tremor, a dispatcher said. Officers were sent out to investigate the noise complaints.
They didn’t know it was an earthquake until they saw it on TV, she said.
