RINGWOOD — If residents in Ringwood and surrounding communities felt their beds shake overnight, they weren't dreaming.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 2.07-magnitude earthquake in the area at 12:58 a.m. Saturday.

The Geological Survey considers that low on the scale of earthquakes, although it could be felt in Mahwah as well as in the New York towns of Suffern Sloatsburg.

The USGS reported the quake to be 2.4 km northwest of Ringwood.
