RANSOMVILLE, N.Y. (WKBW) — The U.S. Geological Survey says a low-magnitude 1.9 earthquake was registered in the Ransomville area Wednesday afternoon.

The epicenter was registered about five miles from Ransomville around Ridge Road and Cambria Wilson Road.

Because of the mild strength of the earthquake, it is unlikely a lot of people felt it.

About three people did report to the USGS that they felt an earthquake within the area.
