BROOKLYN - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says an earthquake that was centered in Virginia, but was strong enough to reach Brooklyn, didn't cause major damage or injuries.

The earthquake's tremors were an unusual feeling for many Brooklyn residents, who were left dumbfounded and rattled inside swaying buildings.

Many Brooklyn residents who were riding the train when the earthquake struck say they didn't feel anything, but people above ground say they'll remember the moment when the tremors started for a long time.
