HARTFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The U.S. Geological Survey has confirmed a 3.3-magnitude earthquake near the Connecticut-Rhode Island state line, the third tremor felt in the area in the past five days.

Residents in Plainfield and Danielson in eastern Connecticut say a rumbling noise was heard shortly after 6:30 a.m. Monday.

The U.S. Geological Survey said areas affected by the earthquake Monday were Plainfield, Killingly and Norwich in Connecticut, and Coventry and Providence in Rhode Island

Police in eastern Connecticut said they received several reports of homes shaking, but none of structural damage, WCBS 880 Connecticut Bureau Chief Fran Schneidau reported.

Last Thursday, an earthquake with a magnitude of 2.0 to 2.2 was felt in Plainfield. Homeowners reported that it was strong enough to shake picture frames off the walls.

On Friday, residents reported another loud boom in the form of a tremor that registered at 0.4.

John Ebel of the Weston Observatory told WCBS 880 that Monday’s 3.3-magnitude quake was preceded by some smaller tremors as well as three to four aftershocks.

Renee Toper, of Plainfield, said, like Thursday’s earthquake, the latest temblor sounded like an explosion and rattled her house. It also knocked food off shelves and shook her 15-year-old daughter out of her bed.

It has Toper doing some research.

“Of course, I did look up the impact of earthquakes, and it did indicate that from 3.0 to 3.9, they’re very light and usually don’t cause any structural damage,” Toper told Schneidau.
