October 17, 2012 - PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — An earthquake in southern Maine has rattled nearby New England states. The U.S. Geological Survey said the epicenter of the 4.0
magnitude quake was about 3 miles west of Hollis Center, Maine, and
about 3 miles deep. That location is about 20 miles west of Portland.
The quake was felt in Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts,
including Boston, and as far south as Rhode Island and Connecticut. The
Maine Emergency Management Agency had no immediate reports of damage.
The York County Communications Center near the epicenter was inundated
with emergency calls, and dispatchers were too busy to talk. -Whdh
