Sunday Earthquake Strikes Centerville, Maine
Yesterday's quake was registered almost 60 miles away from the two quakes that happened on the morning of December 9th in Robbinston, Maine.
A 2.8 magnitude earthquake happened at 1:37 p.m. this past Sunday in the small town of Centerville, which is north of Route 1 between Columbia Falls and Jonesboro. The quake was 3.1 miles below the earth's surface. Sunday's earthquake was the 1st to happen in Maine this year. In 2020, Maine saw 9 earthquakes across the state.
A 2.8 earthquake is considered minor, and could have been felt by some who lives in the approximate area.
Amazingly enough, those two earthquakes spurned conspiracy theories by some across the internet that the sounds heard on December 9th in Robbinston was actually an attack on 50,000 Chinese troops that had covertly made their way onto the U.S. mainland. The fictitious attack supposedly had killed them all.
Besides the two earthquakes in Robbinston this past December, we saw 7 others in Maine in 2020. They were:
November 22nd - Jackman 2.3 magnitude
October 21st - West Paris - 1.8 magnitude
August 28th - Turner - 1.7 magnitude
July 29th - Bath - 2.2 magnitude
July 24th - Harrison - 2.1 magnitude
April 11th - Winterport - 2.1 magnitude
March 9th - Scarborough - 2.7 magnitude
