VERMONTVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - A minor earthquake has rattled the northern Adirondacks.

The 2.4-magnitude temblor struck at 8:46 a.m. Wednesday and was centered 11 miles northeast of Saranac Lake.

Sue Capone of Vermontville told the Adirondack Daily Enterprise that the quake shook her house and came with a big boom that sounded like thunder.

The temblor followed other small quakes near Val-des-Bois, Quebec, and near Wiscasset, Maine.
