2.2 Magnitude Earthquake Recorded Along Maine-Canada Border

CALAIS, Maine - Officials say a small earthquake was recorded along the border of Maine and Canada.
 
The 2.2 magnitude earthquake was reported early Tuesday about 20 miles north of Calais. WMTW-TV reports the earthquake is the latest in a spate of earthquakes recorded across Maine since the beginning of the year.
 
The U.S. Geological Survey says earthquakes recorded below a 3.0 magnitude are considered low intensity and felt by very few people, usually.
