A 1.5 earthquake was felt around 8:19 p.m. Tuesday in eastern Massachusetts.
Here are the coordinates Latitude: 42.20, Longitude: 71.39 W. That puts the quake seven kilometers west of Medfield.
So far this year, there have been 14 small quakes across the six New England states.
Earthquakes happen on occasion here in the northeast, but are usually mild like this one.
At times, they can be strong enough to shake items on shelving and even move furniture. This one likely did not do that, but there could be an another one to follow.
