Major earthquake strikes Taiwan as Tsunami fears rise

Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin has the latest on the magnitude 7.4 earthquake on ‘Hannity.’

New Jersey and New York residents felt the earth move Friday morning as a small earthquake was reported by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The earthquake measured at least 4.8 magnitude, according to USGS. The measurement may change as the earthquake is investigated. 

“A 4.8 magnitude earthquake hit New Jersey and was felt in parts of Pennsylvania,” New Jersey Gov. Josh Shapiro said in a statement. “My team and @PEMAHQ are actively monitoring the situation and in contact with counties on any damage. We will keep Pennsylvanians updated.” 


New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a similar statement and said her team “will update the public throughout the day.” 

New York City emergency services said residents will receive cell phone alerts Friday morning.  

Several people on social media commented that they felt the earth shake in Manhattan and surrounding areas. 

The Fire Department of New York said there were no initial reports of damage.
