I got to my office early this morning and was sitting down turning on my computer to get it going after I had got the coffee pot going. One of my agents was also in the office and she came down the hall and was talking to me so I turned to look at her and we had a thunderous noise and a few seconds of shaking. It was the kind of shaking that leaves damage behind and nothing fell off the walls, but it did rattle. The red dot near the intersection is my office, the orange dot about center up and down and 1/3 from the left was the center. You can see it was also only about three miles from the bridges at Plant Branch on 441 as well. It was felt in several surrounding counties and reported.
Within a few seconds our local community groups on Facebook lit up with "did you hear that?", "did you feel that?" and "what the heck was that?". The common thread had the answer withing a few comments. Us locals know that they happen here now and again. Never bad. Today's was a 2.6.
Did you know that you can and should report when you think you might have felt an earthquake? They have a site "DID YOU FEEL IT?"
You can also fairly quickly find information on earthquakes after they occur in the United States on line here.
