June 27th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Most residents in Spencerville, Maryland had already gone to bed when they felt the slight shaking of an earthquake under their homes. 

A 1.8 magnitude earthquake struck the Montgomery County town between 11:15 and 11:30pm Monday night.  The United States Geological Survey confirmed the quake to be a little over 3 miles down into the earth. 

No damages or injuries were reported but the USGS received calls from Laurel, Columbia, and Ellicott City from those who felt the rumble.
