A magnitude 3.2 earthquake was recorded by the United States Geological Survey Sunday near Meadowlark Lake west of Buffalo.

The USGS estimates that 30,000 2.5 to 5.4 magnitude earthquakes occur annually. Earthquakes this size are often felt but cause minimal damage.  

The USGS collects information about earthquakes from people who felt an earthquake and creates maps that show what people experienced and the extent of damage. If you felt the earthquake Sunday near Meadowlark Lake, you can submit information at https://earthquake.usgs.gov/data/dyfi/

The depth of the quake was recorded at 5.0 kilometers, which is defined by the USGS as “very shallow.”
