The rumbling started early on the Fourth of July in western Maine but fireworks weren’t to blame.

The U.S. Geological Survey says there was a Magnitude 2.1 earthquake centered near Waterford in Oxford County early Saturday.

Earthquakes of this magnitude aren’t uncommon in Maine.

The USGS reports that a Magnitude 2.2 earthquake occurred near Sabbatus in February.
