I just felt a minor earthquake, or what I thought was one. It was either that, or our dog scratching herself violently.
The house shook, things moved just a bit.
Only a little over a year ago we had another minor earthquake felt in RI.
How do I know? I saw on Twitter: earthquake RI
Others felt the same thing too.
Everyone seems safe, unless you were building houses of cards.
UPDATE – October 16, 2012 @ 7:47PM
It was a 4.5 earthquake, centered about 5km west of Hollis Center, ME. Reports on twitter say it was felt throughout the northeast including MA, VT, NH, RI, CT and parts of NY. Someone tweeted me from NY saying her mirror move a bit.
The earthquake was picked up by mainstream news outlets in the past few minutes:
- WPRI – Maine Earthquake felt throughout New England
- Reuters – Magnitude 4.5 earthquake strikes Maine, felt in Boston
No reports of any damage that I’ve seen yet.
