A small earthquake was felt in parts of Morris and Passaic counties overnight – the latest of nearly a dozen earthquakes to hit the state this year so far.

The shakeup happened less than a mile and a half north of Wanaque - measuring in at a magnitude of 1, according to Lamont-Doherty Cooperative Seismographic Network.

Since the beginning of the year, at least 11 measurable, but small, earthquakes have hit the Garden State.

About two-thirds of those quakes have hit in Butler. Others have hit in Clifton and Ringwood.
