The strongest earthquake in decades hit southern New England at 9am on Sunday.

The M3.6 quake rattled homes but did not cause any significant damage. Its epicenter was situated at a depth of 9.3 miles in Buzzards Bay, off the coast of New Bedford, Massachusetts.

The tremor was the strongest in the area since 1976 (last record: M3.5), lasted for about 10 to 15 seconds and the rumblings were reported across, Connecticut, Rhode Island and as far away as Long Island, New York.

The agency’s website was flooded by around 14,000 visitors in the hours after the quake, with people from 100 miles away reporting the incident.

Earthquakes in New England are felt over long distances because the rock here is old and continuous and transmits the energy a long way.

Some that experienced the tremor reported that “it was a rumbling. It sounded like something exploded. It rumbled. The whole house shook.

Meanwhile, it seems that this earthquake in New England created more fear than harm. That’s a good thing to know! Always be prepared! More earthquake news on Strange Sounds and Steve Quayle.
