CONTOOCOOK — A small earthquake rumbled central New Hampshire Thursday evening, according to observations taken at the Weston Observatory at Boston College.
The observatory reported that a 2.5 to 2.6 magnitude earthquake happened just northwest of Contoocook.
No data was available on the earthquake from the United States Geological Survey's website, which is down due to the partial government shutdown.
