For the third time in a month, a “micro quake” rumbled beneath the earth in the North Country. The latest event occurred Monday just after Midnight. According to the U.S. geological Survey, the 2.2 magnitude quake was centered 7 miles south-southeast of Potsdam. The two other micro quakes were a 2.3 centered near Carthage earlier this month, and a 2.3 centered three miles north of Sackets Harbor. The last earthquake to cause damage in the North Country hit the Ausable Forks area in 2002. That 5.1 quake caused over $16 million in damage.
