    The U.S. Geological Survey says a small earthquake has occurred in Delaware after another happened there nearly two weeks before.

    The USGS says the magnitude 1.2 earthquake occurred Wednesday at 12:45 a.m. roughly 8 miles northeast of Dover. A magnitude 4.1 happened on Nov. 30 roughly 6 miles from the city, south of where Wednesday’s was.

    The Wednesday quake had a depth of more than 1.5 miles, while the depth of the November one was more than 6 miles.

    November’s tremor may have been the largest earthquake in Delaware since one along the Delaware River near Wilmington in October 1871.
