Maine Earthquake Felt in VT, Cavendish

 A magnitude 4.0 earthquake centered in southern Maine rattled Vermont and much of the rest of New England on Tuesday evening, the second minor temblor to affect the region in a week. The quake hit at 7:12 p.m. with an epicenter about four miles west of Hollis Center, Maine, according to the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colo., which monitors and reports on earthquakes worldwide. There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the fairly minor tremor, which was slightly stronger than the quake that shook the area last week. Burlington Free Press
