I think I just felt an earthquake… in southern New Hampshire (Nashua). It was a very small quake, but the house was definitely shaking. I can’t even imagine what a larger earthquake would feel like.
My non-expert opinion is that it was less than a 2.5, but of course, this is my first earthquake experience. (Guess I was way off, although we aren’t all that close to the epicenter)… pretty crazy.
*** Update ***
The USGS is reporting it was a 4.6 magnitude earthquake about 20 miles from Portland, Maine (near Lake Arrowhead).
same here in dover, nh on seacoast…house was shaking…
I’m in dover too, stuff fell of bureaus
My house just shook in hampton
I felt it too in Upper Valley NH. I had the same reaction you had! I can’t imagine what a bigger quake would feel like! It scared me!
So we weren’t the only crazy people here in Newmarket NH… here it was not that small… my apartment was shaking.
Yes, you did feel a small quake. I am in Dover and it lasted about 5 seconds and rattled dishes and was quite loud. Several neighbors came out to see what was going on.
Hope the dishes are ok.
Me too. House just shook in Brookline!
Yeah….. we just felt it here in Windham NH too 5 mins. ago!!!!
House shook hard with deep rumble- long duration in south hampton, nh approx. 7:15 PM
Didn’t last too long in Nashua.
I just felt it also. my house shook for a few seconds. on winchester st nashua

Earthquake indeed, Rochester – NH.
I’m guessing 5.7 and I don’t think we were the epicenter.
way off … 4.6 on WMUR now.
I was pretty far off in my guess, too 🙂
Felt it in Seabrook, NH. Sister felt it in Amesbury, MA as well. I thought for a second it was the Seabrook power station exploding or something
Usgs website says it was a 4.5 from Lake Arrowhead in Maine
It was a 4.6 magnitude along the Maine border; felt all over the state
Pelham felt it! Scared the devil out of me. I thought my furnace was blowing up.
OMG!! I just felt it here in Nashua…thought I was losing my mind! Glad I wasn’t the only one to feel it!
Thought you were moving to Boston.
We are… We are hanging out with my parents in NH right now.
If I recall you felt that last one too a few years ago..although I think you were somewhere else at the time.
Sort of, but it was the first earthquake that I actually felt. There was one in NYC while I was at lunch with Brian Gilbert, but I didn’t feel it https://www.domaininvesting.com/nyc-earthquake-update-8720
Our house was shaking like crazy here in Plymouth, NH. My husband and I jumped up in surprise and ran outside. We have both felt tremors/earthquakes in NH before but this one lasted longer and was more violent.
scary when ur house or apt shakes
I live in Wilton NH n I felt my house shake
The world is coming to an end…
dump your domains!!
Hehe, come to California, this is just another Tuesday for us 🙂
Shoot, in California we wouldn’t even get out of bed for a 4.6…!
Hope all is well with you Elliot! 🙂
Not fun. I was on the 14th floor in Santiago Chile when I felt a shake.
See? You close on your NYC apartment and look what happens? The whole Northeast Corridor goes on tilt! I’m glad you get to go back home, closer to grandparents for your daughter, etc. Have a blast. New seasons are always refreshing and invigorating!
First the earthquake, now Sandy. NYC would have been a more immersive experience weathering Hurricane Sandy, but I’d still like to get your view from Boston!
It will be high tide when Sandy makes landfall Monday evening. It you can coordinate an earthquake at the same time, it will really be messy!!!
Sorry of that last sentence – irony is out of place with a deadly storm this size! According to the Huffington post infographic, it looks like the main path of Sandy will pass Boston by:
