A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck southern Maine shortly after 7 p.m. ET and was felt in Boston:

7:31PM EDT October 16. 2012 - A magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck southern Maine shortly after 7 p.m. ET and was felt in Boston.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake, about 17 miles deep, was centered near Lake Arrowhead.

No reports so far of any damage.

The USGS says the New England region has "felt small earthquakes and suffered damage from infrequent larger ones since colonial times. Moderately damaging earthquakes strike somewhere in the region every few decades, and smaller earthquakes are felt roughly twice a year."

My brother lives back in New Hampshire and they definitely felt it. He said his boys were really scared, they tried to tell them that it was just an airplane flying over, but they wouldn't buy it.

Well if it's like in Montreal, Boston, California (Major cities) or near by Vancouver then I just post 'em.

If it's outside of North America then no, unless it's over 7.0 magnitude.

Felt it here in Quesnel, whole house shook, light fixtures swinging, broken glass wind chimes all over the floor and then got the after effects from the one in Montana as well. Hope all the family on the island is on their way down the tsunami evac route right now........

Damn. I hope everyone there is okay... Thankfully it's in a less populated area... but they suffered a direct hit, it seems. It'll be tough to get any rescue out there if it's needed.

Oh, so it's Haida Gwaii when everything's peachy, but "Queen Charlottes" when something bad happens? Nice.

I felt it in Prince George. Pretty intense too. Seems like a long way from the epicenter to feel something that strong. Hope everyone is alright.
