SIDNEY, Maine (AP) _ A small earthquake has shaken parts of central Maine.

Bob Marvinney of the Maine Geological Survey says the 2.6 magnitude quake was centered in Sidney when it hit at about 6:15 a.m. Friday.

He says the tremor could be felt up to Skowhegan to the north and Gardner to the south, but there weren't any reports of damage or injuries.

Marvinney said the quake felt like a rumble and probably rattled a few things. An earthquake with a magnitude of 2.5 to 3 is the smallest generally felt by people.
