It's not something we think about here in New Hampshire, Maine, or Massachusetts because earthquakes and New England aren't synonymous.  I mean that's a California thing, you know?  But get this:

The reason I decided to look into earthquakes in this region is because Massachusetts experienced three small quakes that hit off the coast of Rhode Island that strong enough to feel.  Those three hit on May 14th and May 15th with magnitudes between 2.2 and 2.5 according to Earthquake Track.

Here's the readout for the Granite State that has had ten earthquakes in the last four months.  Who knew?  Maybe you did know earthquakes happen more then we know but they're just minor enough that we have no idea localized seismic activity is literally happening right under our feet.

Personally this has been a teaching moment for me to learn that earthquakes aren't that uncommon, they're just minor in New England.
