There are no reports of damage after a tiny earthquake was measured in the Starksboro area on Christmas Day.

Vermont Emergency Management says the 1.8 magnitude earthquake was recorded at 3:38 a.m. Sunday at a depth of just over half a mile 20 miles southeast of Burlington.

Earthquakes with a magnitude less than 2.5 are rarely felt, but they can be detected by seismographic equipment.
