BELFAST, Maine

Minor earthquake recorded in Maine

A minor earthquake has been reported near the coastal Maine city of Belfast, about 30 miles south of Bangor. Boston University’s Weston Observatory said the Friday night quake, which had a magnitude of 2.1, was centered about 10 miles west of Belfast in Waldo County. A Maine Emergency Management Agency duty officer, Bill DeLong, said the quake, which was recorded around 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.
