    Another aftershock hit New Jersey early this morning.

    The United States Geological Survey registered a 2.9 magnitude tremor. It hit at 3:50 a.m. in Tewksbury, Hunterdon County. The aftershock was felt throughout parts of the state to as far as on Long Island and Staten Island.

    New Jersey has seen more than 150 aftershocks since the initial 4.8 magnitude earthquake at White House Station in April.

    New Jersey is not used to experiencing earthquakes, in fact, the last significant one in the Garden State was in the 1880s.
