    A small earthquake rattled parts of Westchester County early Wednesday, federal data confirms. 

    The minor, 2.2-magnitude quake hit about 5 kilometers north northwest of Lake Mohegan, at 6:14 a.m., federal data says. 

    The federal earthquake tracker indicates it got reports about the quake from about 69 people. One woman from Cold Spring and a man from Yorktown Heights both called News 4 to report feeling the tremor.

    The quake didn't appear widely felt, though. Most reports on Twitter were from people asking if anyone else had felt it. No injuries were reported, nor were there any indications of damage.
