Yikes! There was just had an earthquake in Maine, an earthquake that extended shaking into northeast Massachusetts.
I was sitting at my computer and the house started shaking. No power loss, just shake. I heard a bit of noise, I felt shaking that seemed to go on for a long time. It . The thought went through my mind that I should get out of the house, but I was frozen in place.
I have to admit that I was relieved when I went outside after the shaking stopped to chat with neighbors who felt the same thing. At least I knew I didn't imagine it!
The quake was a magnitude 4.6, located 5km west of Hollis Center, Maine.
