POLAND, Maine (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) – A 4.0 magnitude earthquake that originated in southern Maine around 7:12 p.m. on Tuesday caught many residents off-guard, including several residents attending a town hall meeting in Poland.
The town hall meeting kicked off around 7 p.m. with the usual business, but shortly after it started something out of the ordinary occurred.
One of the board members was giving a rundown on asbestos abatement and parking requirements when the room and the camera began shaking.
The female board member immediately stopped talking and looked around in amazement.
"Oh my God. I've never felt one in my life. Wow. Never in my life," she exclaimed. "Whatever I have to say cannot match that, so I might as well quit right now."
Needless to say, the earthquake brought some excitement to an otherwise mundane meeting.
