New York City residents have been living through a seismic event with little warning, and some of them were on the ground as it hit.
The event occurred Thursday as the city was experiencing its worst ever temblor.
“The earth was shaking,” said one resident of a building on Fifth Avenue.
“It was like something out of a movie.”
The city is experiencing a massive earthquake with an epicenter of the city near the city’s southern tip.
The city has already recorded more than 200 aftershocks.
It was the third quake of magnitude 6.0 or greater that has hit New York since February, according to the National Weather Service.
“I’m very happy that I’m here now,” one resident said.
“This is not the first time we’ve had an earthquake that’s felt like this.
We’ve had some big ones and the worst of them.”
The earthquake was centered around the South Bronx.
It caused extensive damage to the Lower East Side, the Bronx, Harlem, and parts of Brooklyn.
The quake’s epicenter was in the Manhattan area, and it was about 4 miles (6 kilometers) from the city, according the National Seismic Network.
Some of the buildings that were damaged include the Brooklyn Bridge and a subway station.
Many of the homes were damaged.
The earthquake also caused extensive power outages, including in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Virginia, Maryland, and Virginia Beach, Virginia.
“We have the worst power outage of any major city in the world,” the New York Power Authority said.
The power outage caused widespread damage to schools and other infrastructure, and caused many residents to go without power for several days.
