BREAKING: Another Quake In Maine. WTF?
[link to www.wcsh6.com]

NEAR WATERBORO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Tuesday morning got off to a shaky start in York County.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 2.3 was detected by the U.S. Geological Survey at 6:11 a.m.

It was centered about 6 kilometers south of Lake Arrowhead near the town of Waterboro at a depth of nearly 5 kilometers below the surface.

Soon after it hit, email and social media messages began pouring into NEWS CENTER from people who felt the earthquake.

Nearly two month earlier, another earthquake measuring 4.0 hit in almost the same area.

USGS seems to have removed it hmmm...methane pressure building or effects from movement of the north american craton most likely. Or arseholes are fracking and further destabilizing the situation.

Seems rather unusual. Not to say we're immune to earthquakes in northern New England. But the same location on two occasions in short order? Despite shortage of topsoil here (compliments of the glaciers), the visible bedrock has always offered a sense of immunity from subterranean activity as witnessed to greater degrees around the world. Clearly, that sensibility is fallible.

there is likely a DUMB nearby or they building one. Either that or fracking.

It's called glacial rebound. As more ice melts in northern Canada the quakes will increase until balance is achieved.

Not quite sure on that one, the locations of the recent quakes in Maine are near the coast. Look at a glacial rebound map of North America, Maine is only low risk at the northern most border to Canada.

Actually I live in Lake Arrowhead where the last quake and the 4.0 in Oct was located, and I am no where near the coast. I'm about 30 miles inland, in a lakes region.
In my area alone there are 4-5 lakes, Arrowhead, Little Ossipee, Sherbourne, and I'm not sure of the other names.
These quakes make me wonder if there is something going on beneath the lakes? Maybe it was all one large lake before?

The USGS won't post anything less than a 2.5, so this doesn't appear on their activity map. The local media must consider that a metric to determine whether its worth investigating, because after some anecdotal coverage, the story disappeared.

The USGS puts us in a reasonably low risk region. But then again, they list Iowa as a no-risk region; And it enjoyed the 1895 6.8. So I have no idea how to interpret these local events.

The Sable Island gas fields aren't too far away, as the crow flies. I'd be curious to know what information is being shared internally by the geologists that monitor that project.
