4.5 in southern Maine. I thought my house was coming down. Boston


Hey Meta

Yeah, weird.. I was on the phone earlier with a friend in Buxton and she was griping about the earthquake. Said she thought it would be larger than a 4.5 because it rattled the heck out of the place. Geography ...
She said she got really disoriented and it then shook hard. I looked it up and the epicenter was in Holllis and Buxton isnt that far away according to the map. Interesting times

I am at least 70 to 80 miles from the epicenter of that quake.

If it had kept up for another 15 or 20 seconds everything in the kitchen would have been on the floor.
I am setting not 15 feet from the edge of a good sized river, wish it had been daylight so I could have seen the waters reaction.
The folks at the epicenter must have gotten a good surprise.

This was not deep, maybe that's why it felt larger.

Big indeed.

100km circular search based on Epicentre

Nothing that big on the list.

Maine's not a common place for earthquakes...

Largest was back in 1904 03 21 - Southeast Maine - M 5.1

A M 4.5 would appear to be largest since the above.

Hopefully it's a one-off for at least another 100 years

Hi Advantage

Geography definitely has something to do with it. This is from the USGS.


Earthquakes in the central and eastern U.S., although less frequent than in the western U.S., are typically felt over a much broader region. East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area as much as ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast. A magnitude 4.0 eastern U.S. earthquake typically can be felt at many places as far as 100 km (60 mi) from where it occurred, and it infrequently causes damage near its source. A magnitude 5.5 eastern U.S. earthquake usually can be felt as far as 500 km (300 mi) from where it occurred, and sometimes causes damage as far away as 40 km (25 mi).


This is why us Yankees freak out when this happens. It felt MUCH stronger.

Looking at the map, I am probably more like a 100 miles west, in NW Concord, New Hampshire.
Knew right off what it was and that it wasn't that close, no noise with it and it rolled as well as shook.
Came in two waves, the first the strongest.
And it seemed to roll from the east.

Have no idea, she did tell me there was damage and her bookcase "walked". She described it as "hard snaps" that threw small objects around and moved dishes and her knick knacks. Thats about all I can tell you.. and thats 2nd hand. Im all the way in Illinois now, and sweat every time this stuff happens as I am straddling the New Madrid and associated faults.. and I like my knick knacks.

You beat me to it

I had friends feel this one, so thought I'd post it up. I'll no doubt be hearing more about this one. I used to live just a few kilometres from the epicentre, and I felt a fair amount of quakes while I was there. They're usually relatively deep (over 100km), so they don't tend do to too much damage. I think there was a 6 earlier this year that went mostly unnoticed as it was over 300km deep. This one was definitely felt though.
