Did you feel that? An earthquake hit Maine Tuesday night, October 16. The magnitude 4.6 earthquake struck southern Maine shortly after 7 p.m. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was about 17 miles deep and centered near Lake Arrowhead.

Reports from USGS’ “Did You Feel It?”, say residents across New England, including the city of Boston, and as far away as Pittsburgh, Pa. and northern New Jersey felt Tuesday’s quake.

As of 9 p.m. (ET), there were no reports of severe damage, according to NBC News.

From USA Today:

The USGS says the New England region has “felt small earthquakes and suffered damage from infrequent larger ones since colonial times. Moderately damaging earthquakes strike somewhere in the region every few decades, and smaller earthquakes are felt roughly twice a year.”

Let us know if you felt it and how strong it was.
