CALAIS – People living along the Maine border with Canada may have felt the ground rumble last night.
A small quake was reported in New Brunswick around 11:50 p.m. Monday, a little more than 20 miles north of Calais.
The trembler measured 2.2 on the Richter scale and no damage is reported.
Earthquakes are fairly common in Maine, but they’re generally small and some people don’t even realize they’ve happened. In fact, it was the 21st quake to hit New England this year.
The strongest quake ever reported in Maine was a 5.1 in Eastport back in 1904. That same area recorded a magnitude four quake just eight years later.
