An earthquake hit southern Maine a few minutes ago. The USGS earthquake page is currently listing it as magnitude 4.6, centered 5 km (3.6 miles) west of Hollis, Maine.

Myself? I heard a rumble and wondered if something had fallen down. Didn't feel any movement; no damage noted.

Shortly thereafter, my iPhone beeped at me; I've got the Red Cross Earthquake app set to send me alerts of any quakes over magnitude 3.5 within 250 miles:

Earthquake!

Operational check: passed!

These opinions, of course, are worth at most whatever you've paid me for them. After all, I thought the first debate wasn't a "game-changing moment", and everybody else thought it was a huge win for Romney.
