On Monday, shortly before 1pm, a 3.3 magnitude earthquake shook just outside Waterville, and was reportedly felt throughout the region. It was followed up with three aftershock quakes ranging in size from 1.1 to 1.7 magnitude.

Earthquakes aren’t new to the area- in fact, they are normal- however, Reusch says, 3.3 magnitude is bigger than average…
