ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. (WWNY) - A number of people in St. Lawrence County are reporting they felt the earth move at around 1 p.m. Monday.

There are websites where people share observations about seismic activity.

On one site, dozens of people from both St. Lawrence County and southeastern Ontario, Canada reported a rumbling noise, rattling windows and the ground shaking.

The U.S. Geological Survey has no report of earthquakes in that area.

SUNY Potsdam, which has a seismograph, said it recorded nothing with a magnitude over 1.0.

7 News has reached out to Fort Drum to see if it might be the origin. We’ll update this story if we hear from officials there.
