Tuesday, March 27, 2018

CALAIS, Maine (AP) — Officials say a small earthquake was recorded alongside the border of Maine and Canada.

The 2.2 magnitude earthquake was reported early today about 20 miles north of Calais. WMTW-TV reports the earthquake is the latest in a spate of earthquakes recorded across Maine since the beginning of the year.

The U.S. Geological Survey says earthquakes recorded below a 3.0 magnitude are considered low intensity and felt by very few people, usually.
