The second quake struck at 7:10 p.m. four kilometers east of Centerville, according to the US Geological Survey.

No damages or injuries reported.

So what can you normally expect from a 2.8 magnitude earthquake like two outside Jonesboro and Centerville?

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), earthquakes usually only cause damage when they are in the 4-5 range. However, differences in soil composition, building construction, and distance from the earthquake can affect the results.

Thursday’s two earthquakes were recorded as the ninth and tenth earthquakes felt in Maine this year, according to the Maine Geological Survey.

Prior to Thursday, the last earthquake recorded as felt by Maine residents was on May 23 with a magnitude of 2.2 near Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, with reports from York, Maine.

If you find yourself in the middle of an earthquake, like the one you felt in Maine on Thursday, the USGS has a self-report tool called “Did You Feel It?” This tool “collects information from people who have felt an earthquake and creates maps showing what people have been exposed to and the extent of damage”.
