At 7:20 p.m. last evening, the region experienced a 4.5 level earthquake that was centered in southern Maine.  Other than one or two cracked foundations in New Hampshire, I haven't heard of any tangible damage from the event.  However, many people in Greater Lowell felt it.  Some described it as an aircraft flying low overhead; others as a heavy truck rolling down the street; still others as a tree falling or workers doing roof repairs.  Despite the lack of any damage, it also got many people thinking about preparations for that kind of event which is something we don't think about as often as we should.
