Minor Earthquake Recorded in Maine

BELFAST, Maine (AP) — BELFAST, Maine (AP) — A minor earthquake has been reported near the coastal Maine city of Belfast.

Boston University’s Weston Observatory says Friday night’s quake, which had a magnitude of 2.1, was centered about 10 miles west of Belfast in Waldo County.

Maine Emergency Management Agency duty officer Bill DeLong says the quake, which was recorded at about 11 p.m., was not strong enough to cause damage and could not be detected by people, unless they were very close to it. DeLong says his agency received no reports from police or the public about the quake.
