Screen Shot

The United States Geological Survey said there was a magnitude 2.7 quake situated in East Kingston, New Hampshire at about 9:30 a.m.

The USGS said the quake started at 9:28 a.m. with its epicenter in East Kingston, New Hampshire, just over the MA border.

The quake was picked up locally in Amesbury at the middle school where teacher Gale Regis has a seismograph.

By about an hour later, the USGS had received more than 800 reports from people who said they felt it. "We believe it to have been an natural disaster", Seabrook Emergency Management said.

But, he says, "it was way below the threshold for damage".

The quake was felt in northeast MA and Ebel says probably in southwestern ME as well.

He says earthquakes of around magnitude 3.0 are "not an uncommon occurrence" in New England.

Other police and fire departments also reported fielding numerous calls.

Nearly immediately, social media was inundated with reports of the natural disaster.

Information from the Associated Press was used in this report.
