People have reported houses and buildings shaking in nearby towns such as Bowdoinham, Richmond, Wiscasset and Sabattus.

A Richmond resident reported hearing a boom and feeling his house shake at 6:47 p.m.

Nobody has reported damage. They were just concerned what the rumble and boom was, particularly because a natural gas pipeline runs through Richmond.

Meanwhile a M2.7 earthquake just hit the New Madrid fault zone on January 18, 2018.
