One month ago on April 27, a website devoted to volcanoes reported an “unknown event (originally reported as an earthquake) 28 miles southeast of St. George, in Knox County, Maine,” which occurred at 5:05 p.m.

The location would be somewhere offshore in the Gulf of Maine. I saw the reference on, and for some reason it was reported in Spanish.
