3.0 Earthquake Reported in Washington County
A 3.0 Earthquake was reported early Wednesday morning in coastal Maine.
The United States Geological Society says the earthquake was reported at 7:30 Wednesday morning in the town of Robbinston, in Washington County. According to the USGS, most earthquakes below 3.0 are not felt by residents in the area. The Washington County Emergency Management Agency posted on its Facebook page that residents have reported that they felt it rumbling and shaking their homes.
Robbinston sits on the border with Canada, on the Bay of Fundy.
Maine's Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry says Maine gets several small earthquakes every year, most of which are not detected by the public. Larger earthquakes are extremely rare.
