It's fairly rare, but New York does experience earthquakes and this morning near Rochester, NY The United States Geological Survey reports that an earthquake happened northeast of Rochester.  WIVB- Channel 4 reported the earthquake occurred eight miles northeast of Webster, or 18 miles ENE of Rochester. The earthquake's depth was five kilometers.

In May, 2018 a 2.4 magnitude earthquake occurred under Lake Ontario.People in the Canadian towns of Whtiby, Ajax and Oshawa reported feeling that particular quake when it occurred.

I remember when I moved to Buffalo in 1999, there was small earthquake that happened and I felt it while sleeping, I had no idea it was actually an earthquake, I just that there was some construction or big truck passing by my apartment.  But I woke to the news that there had actually been a small earthquake reported that early morning.
