The USGS says the 2.9 magnitude quake occurred at 9:32 p.m. last Tuesday, with its epicenter 18 miles southwest of Albany in the town of Berne.
The quake originated more than 4 miles underground and was also felt in neighboring Schoharie County. There were no reports of damage.
A magnitude 3 quake that occurred in the same area in May was felt as far away as Saratoga County.
A quake of magnitude 2.5 to 3 is the smallest generally felt by people.
