Residents of multiple states in New England felt a 3.6 magnitude as it hit the region Sunday morning, officials said.

No injuries or significance damage have been reported by the quake, which centered in the Bliss Corner area of Dartmouth, Mass., at about 9 a.m., the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency said.

People throughout southeastern Massachusetts, as well as some in Rhode Island and Connecticut, could feel the earthquake.

“There was a slight earthquake in the Northeast that was felt by many here in Connecticut this morning,” tweeted Gov. Ned Lamont. “We haven’t received any reports of damage but we will keep you updated.”

Earlier in the morning, authorities reported that the earthquake had a magnitude of 4.0, before downgrading it to 3.6 shortly afterward.

Dartmouth is located about 60 miles south of Boston.
