    BOSCAWEN, N.H. -- Hundreds of calls flooded in to emergency operators Saturday night after a small earthquake centered in New Hampshire rattled windows and shook homes across New England.

    U.S. Geological Survey officials confirmed that a 3.1-magnitude earthquake struck at 11:28 p.m. and was centered at latitude 43.291N and longitude 71.657W in Boscawen, N.H., about 10 miles north of Concord. The earthquake occurred approximately 2.1 miles deep into the ground (3.4 km) and sent tremors that were felt in parts of New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts, officials said.

    The USGS website confirming the location and magnitude of the earthquake can be found at: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/ ... s_all.html

    Francestown resident Tom Peters said that the quake "felt like either an eighteen-wheeler coming up my driveway, or, my immediate thought was that a large aircraft was coming down directly over my house."

    According to WMUR News 9 Meteorologist Josh Judge, this is considered a relatively minor earthquake, but much larger than what residents typically experience in New Hampshire.

    Numerous residents from across the state called WMUR's newsroom to report shaking and tremors in their home. Many said the quake felt like a "low rumbling" that rattled windows and shook homes for several seconds. Several residents also reported hearing a loud "boom" before feeling their homes shake.

    One emergency dispatcher with the the town of Canterbury reported receiving 400 calls in 20 minutes.

    Saturday night's quake is the second New Hampshire has felt in 2010. A 5.5-magnitude earthquake hit the Ontario-Quebec border in Canada in June, which was felt as far away as New Hampshire, Vermont, New York and Michigan.

    I've never heard of a quake in NH before, is there a fault line up there or is this whole tectonic plate we live on about to freak out?
