FDNY responds to sounds of 'booms and shakes,' power outages on New York's Roosevelt Island: earthquake suspected

Emergency reponders "reported feeling vibrations" in Roosevelt Island, Manhattan, and Queens.

Firefighters and emergency response teams responded to reports of small explosions on New York City's Roosevelt Island early Tuesday morning. 

Just before 6 am, residents on the island in the East River reported what they said sounded like explosions coming from Roosevelt Island and surrounding areas, according to local reports

As of Tuesday afternoon, the loud noises are suspected to have been caused by a 1.7 magnitude earthquake.

Power outages occured afterwards and many residents, while sleeping, were jolted awake by the loud noise. No injuries have been reported as of Wednesday.

Emergency responders "reported feeling vibrations" on Roosevelt Island, in Manhattan, and Queens, according to the Daily Mail. Residents as far away as Astoria also woke up from the noise.

FDNY investigated the location of what one resident called "booms and shakes." Firefighters had been "trying to find the source" looking into possible manhole fires under the city. 

After investigations into the mysterious "booms and shakes," the 1.7 magnitude earthquake which centered in the neighborhood of Astoria has become the primary and suspected cause.
