Earthquake Strikes Maine

An earthquake occurred in Maine at 7:12 PM this evening, and was felt in the Boston area.  The epicenter was near Lake Arrowhead, west of Portland.  At 4.6 on the Richter scale, this quake was smaller than the one hitting Virginia during the summer of 2011, and probably would have been considered to be very minor if it had hit California.

Read the story at the Boston Herald, NBC News, USA Today and NESN.
