Locals report feeling the shock waves of an earthquake that registered a magnitude of 5.8 on the Richter scale this afternoon.
In Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow, the tremble last about five to ten seconds and caused a flood of calls to local police departments.
"We received a number of calls right away," said Sleepy Hollow Police Chief Greg Camp. "There have been no damages reported in this Village."
According to the United States Geological Survey, the quake occurred at 1:51 p.m., four miles from Louisa, VA, and 83 miles outside of Washington, DC. The earthquake was shallow at only a kilometer in depth.
The quake was felt in Philadelphia and New York City and is reportedly causing some cell phone service disruptions across Westchester County.
"Calls have stopped and cell phones are having problems," Camp said.
