Minor quake rattles New York

NEW YORK (CNN) -- An earthquake with an approximately 2.6 magnitude shook New York City early Saturday, sending shudders through Manhattan and Queens.

New York police officer Arthur Rivera told CNN that there were no injuries and no property damage.

Rivera said the tremor mirrored a small earthquake that occurred in January, which measured 2.5 and also caused no damage.

Carolyn Bell, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Geological Survey, is quoted as saying the quake was felt into Long Island and New Jersey.

Recovery work from the September 11 terrorist attacks on World Trade Center was not interrupted by the quake.
