ROOSEVELT ISLAND (WABC) -- Officials say a 1.7 magnitude earthquake is believed to have jolted residents awake in Roosevelt Island and Queens and knocked out power on Tuesday morning.

The United States Geological Survey reported the earthquake near Astoria, Queens. There were no reports of damage or injuries in New York City.

The earthquake was reported at 5:45 a.m., the same time as the calls began on Roosevelt Island and the surrounding areas, including Astoria and the Upper East Side.

Residents say they were jolted awake by a loud noise and that they felt their buildings shaking.
