Earthquakes are not uncommon in New York as the state does sit on a couple of fault lines. The fault line that runs near Western and Central New York is called the Clarendon-Linden fault system.
According to the latest data, the 3.6 magnitude earthquakes today would be the largest in the Watertown, New York area in over 8 years. There have been seven different earthquakes recorded in the area since 2015.
The largest ever earthquake to hit New York State was a 5.9 magnitude in 1944.
