CONCORD - "I mean you don't really expect this thing in New Hampshire but it definitely gets your attention. I know that was the talk of the bus stop this morning, so everyone was very interested in it," said Nathan Foor, Concord resident.
A somewhat unique event for the Granite State as a 1.7 earthquake shook up Concord. The quake happened just two miles below the surface so it was no shock when people felt the earth move. Foor was at home with his family last night when his wife hear a loud boom.
"She thought the kids fell out of bed or something and it lasted for a good ten to twelve seconds. It reminded me of last year when we had one pretty close by in Boscawen and it was enough to shake the neighborhood," said Foor.
The center was at the intersection of East Side Drive, Christian Avenue and Oriole Road. People said they felt the ground rumble as far North as Penacook and Boscawen and as far South as Pembroke. The Royal Garden Apartments on Christian Avenue didn't see any home damage.
"Well luckily we didn't feel any effects and all the buildings are still standing. There is no issues here," said William Welcome, complex maintenance
