A minor magnitude 3.6 earthquake hit parts of upstate New York on Sunday afternoon. No significant damage was immediately reported.

The US Geological Survey reported that the quake occurred at 2:10 p.m. with an epicenter about 10 miles south of Watertown, near the Adams Center.

People reported feeling a weak to moderate tremor in an area spanning more than a hundred miles, including neighboring Ontario, Canada, and Syracuse to the south, according to the federal agency.

Significant damage and loss usually only occurs when earthquake magnitudes are around 5.5 or greater.
