Did you feel the New Hampshire earthquake?

If you felt…something odd…just before 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning, it may have been an earthquake.

The United States Geological Survey confirmed that an earthquake struck near East Kingston, New Hampshire just after 9:28 a.m. Thursday. The Granite State rumbler registered a 2.7 on the Richter Scale. You know the Richter Scale, right? It’s the earthquake measuring system that even scientists have a hard time explaining.

There weren’t too many reports of shaking closer to the North Shore area, according to the USGS’s maps. And even if you lived close to the epicenter, there would be a little shaking but it wouldn’t be much to feel.
