2.7 Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Southern N.H.

EAST KINGSTON, New Hampshire (WBZ-AM) -- The United States Geological Survey said a small earthquake struck Thursday morning near East Kingston, New Hampshire.

The USGS said the quake happened around 9:28 a.m., and registered at a magnitude of around 2.7. 

Listeners in the area report hearing a boom seeing their blinds shake.

Joe from New Market, New Hampshire told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 he was working from home and felt the quake.

"All of a sudden, I started to notice a rumbling and hear it, and it slowly started to progress," he said. "The whole event was probably just under 10 seconds ... the windows were shaking, the blinds were shaking, my dogs were up kind of running around."

He said he's a "science geek," so he was enjoying the experience and wasn't nervous.

"It was my first earthquake--glad it was a small one with no damage, but definitely cool to live through!" he said. "Everything was rattling and shaking, not to the extent that it was scary, but just kind of grabs your attention and got you to focus on what the heck was going on."
