PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- An earthquake that hit southern Maine Tuesday night has rattled nearby New England states as far as Connecticut, including the Boston area.

The U.S. Geological Survey at first estimated 7:12 p.m. quake as a 4.6 magnitude, but later downgraded that to 4.0. The epicenter, about 3 miles west of Hollis Center, Maine, is about 3 miles deep. That location is about 20 miles west of Portland.

The Maine Emergency Management Agency had no immediate reports of damage or injuries.
