Earthquake Felt Across Central N.H.

Scott McPherson for NHPR

10:14 Earthquake monitored in real time at 9:07 PM from the Weston Observatory. Link is here.

10:05 Map posted on the Weston Observatory site indicates epicenter located 5 Km northwest of Contoocook, with a magnitude of 2.5.

9:55 Seismographic data from the Weston Observatory shows activity at approximately 9:08 PM.

9:29 We are hearing that the tremor was felt in Sutton, Franklin, Warner, Concord, Loudon and Penacook. These reports are coming in through social media, and have not been confirmed by the U.S.G.S.  

9:21 Reports on social media from around the Capital Region indicate that there may have been an earthquake at approximately 9:05 PM. Attempts to access real-time data on the U.S. Geological Survey web site were unsuccessful, as the site is not being maintained as a result of the federal government shutdown. 

We will continue to follow this developing story.
