DEP investigating shaking houses

The houses in question may be above an old mine.
PORTAGE, CAMBRIA COUNTY – The Department of Environmental Protection has been called in to investigate after residents in two homes reported shaking.

Police were called to the 700 block of Cambria Street in Portage Borough around 10:30 Wednesday morning.

The fire chief says people in two different homes in the block felt their homes shaking, and after the shaking stopped could not close some of their doors. No injuries were reported.

He says Portage Borough does sit above old mines. It could be a few days before authorities know what caused the shaking.
