An earthquake centered in Maine was felt throughout New England Tuesday night. It only lasted about 10 seconds, but it caused quite a commotion.
For Chris Boyle, of North Providence, the shake reached across his kitchen table and started rattling his fine china.
"I mean it was audible," Boyle said. "I was thinking what kid went through what wall. You could feel the floor."
For others, it was not the floor, it was the road, as they were driving in Providence.
"We felt this little rumble and everyone just stopped," Finlay O'Hara said. "There were cars in front of us that just stopped in the street. I thought it was an accident."
O'Hara took to Twitter and found out the rumble was actually a 4.0 magnitude earthquake. The epicenter was in Hollis, Maine.
"It was pretty weird. In my 10 years in Rhode Island, I don't think I've ever felt an earthquake," O'Hara said.
