3 earthquakes shook NH on Halloween

Three small earthquakes occurred in an eleven minute span in New Hampshire on Halloween.

The first was a 1.8-magnitude quake, centered in Salisbury, at 2:47 a.m. Monday.

Minutes later, at 2:54 a.m., a 1.3-magnitude earthquake occurred, less than a mile northeast of the first one in Salisbury.

A final 1.6-magnitude quake occurred at 2:58 a.m., centered just to the southeast of Andover.

There were no reports of damage or injuries.

While these earthquakes were large enough to register on seismographs, it's unlikely many people felt them. In New Hampshire, earthquakes of 2.0-magnitude or higher are usually felt. Minor damage can occur if a quake is of 2.5-magnitude.
