Was glad I live in a concrete building when I felt the rumblings. Knew it wasn't outside, but thought maybe it was something that happened downstairs, you know inside the building. (I'm on the 3'd floor) I am in North Cambridge, MA. Also heard from my daughter that lives in Ludlow, MA. Her & the family felt it also. Glad to hear that, so far, they don't think anyone was hurt. But WOW, an Earthquake in Maine felt in MA? What the heck is going on? We don't have Earthquakes!! That's for those crazy people in California. I thought we were safe here! LOL
