Small Earthquake Felt in Eastern Maine

A small earthquake across Maine’s Blue Hill peninsula prompted a handful of calls to law enforcement officials, but no damages were reported.

According to the Weston Observatory at Boston College, the magnitude 2.3 quake happened at 5:23 a.m. Thursday and was centered in the small town of Brooksville.

By late Thursday afternoon, 36 people had recorded on the U.S. Geological Survey website that they felt the quake, some as far away as Bar Harbor, Lincolnville and Warren.
