Hurricanes, torrential rains, yes, New Bedford and the Southcoast has felt that, but never an earthquake. Yes it was small, but it was enough to shake around a few pieces of furniture.

It lasted only 10 seconds or so, but it got our attention. The question is, did you notice?


A 4.6 magnitude earthquake hit Maine, and that is what was felt in the New Bedford area. No reports of damage of injuries yet.
