Reports are pouring in of Jamaica Plain residents who felt their homes shake in what may have been an earthquake.

Here's some of what we're hearing on Twitter:

A JP resident emailed JP Patch to say: "I live between the Arboretum and the Monument on Centre and my house definitely shook for a few seconds. Weird!"

The federal agency that monitors earthquakes reports there was one of 4.6 magnitude at 7:12 p.m. near Hollis Center, Maine.

If you felt the tremor, the U.S. Geological Survey collects data via this online survey.
