State officials held a press conference to brief residents on Connecticut’s emergency response following earthquake on Friday.
The head of the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security, Brenda Bergeron, said the agency is working to find out if there's been any damage in the state.
Officials said there are no reports of significant structural damage, but minor cracks have been reported.
"We are here to assist any city or town that needs assistance, and they can do that through their local emergency management director who then lets our regional coordinator know,” Bergeron said. “It goes up to the EOC (emergency management information) if they need something, we had none of those requested at this time."
Officials said people can call their local emergency management director to report any significant damages.
