CONCORD, NH (NEWS CENTER) - The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a 3.1 magnitude earthquake shook parts of New Hampshire and Southern Maine Saturday night.

The earthquake struck at 11:28 PM Saturday.

The quake was centered about 10 miles northwest of Concord, NH.

NEWS CENTER received emails and phone calls from several viewers in Southern Maine (Wells and even as far north as Naples) reporting that they not only felt the tremor but, like any good Rock song, it made the walls of their houses shake.

Maine's Geolgical Survey says that we aren't sitting on an active fault.  Scientists just aren't sure of the exact cause of earthquakes in the Pine Tree state.

Generally, a handful of small earthquakes will hit the region every year.
