‘Swarm’ of earthquakes felt in central Washington County

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

Five more small earthquakes have been reported in central Washington County, bringing August’s total to 13, which constitutes a “swarm,” according to Maine Geological Survey’s Henry Berry. [See previous earthquake story in the Aug. 17 edition of MVNO]

Local lore says the earthquakes are caused by a fault line running under Centerville, but that’s only partially true, says Berry.
