ALBANY, NY ( RELEASE ) "We have reports of a 2.9 magnitude earthquake just west-southwest of Altamont, New York.

Although this was a mild earthquake, out of an abundance of caution, I have ordered immediate inspection of nearby infrastructure, including a NYPA inspection of the Blenheim-Gilboa Dam in Schoharie County."

This earthquake comes just days after an earthquake centered in Virginia rocked parts of the east coast, and could be felt in Buffalo.

There are no reports into the Eyewitness Newsroom that the Saturday jolt could be felt in Western New York.
