Minor earthquake strikes in Maine

Bob Marvinney of the Maine Geological Survey says the 2.3 magnitude quake was centered in Waterboro when it hit at 6:12 a.m. Tuesday.

People reported feeling the ground rumble and houses shake, but there were no reports of injuries or damages. The tremor was felt throughout much of southern Maine.

Marvinney says given the location, Tuesday’s quake was likely an aftershock of a magnitude 4.5 earthquake on Oct. 16. That quake was felt throughout New England and as far away as New York and Quebec.
