It's interesting to me how different people's experiences are, even in the same area. I saw several people on FB (after my screenshot) saying they felt it and asking others to confirm. I asked my cousin who lives about 10 min from me and he didn't notice. No one in this house but me noticed, either.

AJC breaking news alert shows epicenter just east of August, Ga. Shakes Atlanta.

Felt nothin here in NE Ga, just below Athens.

Here is a link page, so far:

inagist.com...

Says at one point was downgraded to 4.1

Not surprised at all. We have a fault line just there, and when we have a lot of rain (read melting snow and ice) it tends to lube up that fault line and set off small quakes. Infrequent, but it does occur.

Fun times!

Well, if people are moving about or driving, it makes it more difficult to notice.

right, I just mean those of us who happened to be seated and doing whatever. I'm actually surprised I heard the rumble at all with my headphones on. At first I thought it was something in the show I was watching but looking back it was definitely lower than anything they should have / could have been playing.

In Columbia, SC, it was pretty strong, at least by East coast standards. I have felt a lot of very small quakes but never heard the rumble like this one. I heard it before I felt it. The rumble sound started (thought it was jets) then, felt it. Like someone else said, there was a definite side to side shaking. Very cool.

Over 2500 people have reported feeling the quake on the USGS Did you feel it? page.




All of you who live in the region should give a report. It helps with the science. Even if you didn't feel it.

Hey bud, I'm just 30 mi south of Monroe/SC state line and I felt it - and posted in the Quake watch thread



Ok something is going on here in SC; the whole ass-end of my trailer just shook like the washer was off tilt and it ain't on folks. Thought at first it was snow falling off roof, but a check local helios Hodge SC Pauline SC showed it's more than that!. Be back in a minute with screen caps; haven't seen anything yet on USGS. Master folkworm page for all SC helos

Kudos to you for starting a thread


Here's Bird SC heliogram

Lots of dams in the region.
Makes me a bit nervous, given the definitive side to side action.

Hey thanks for the link, I've actually never seen that before since this is such a rare thing for us. Made my report.

Thanks for checking in! That sounds pretty much like what I felt. I don't think I mentioned what I felt other than the jumping around comment, but you could have fooled me blaming the washing machine.

Yeah, don't remind me I have family employed at the Catawba station. (Maybe that means I'll be early in the know if something were to... deviate from the norm lol)

Lexington - House shook for approximately 15 seconds. No rattling glass or anything to that degree.
augusta - Shook entire hotel building for about 10 seconds
Grovetown - Felt a small shake, I thought it was my cat jumping on my computer chair at first.

As close as I can describe it, the earthquake was like 10 - 15, VC-22 Ospreys (A USMC VTOL) traveling at about 1500 feet, and are in a straight line traveling directly over your house and the Ospreys are strung out at about 1/4 mile from each other going over one at a time. vibrating and shaking at the same time.

In fact, thats what I thought it was at first.

Thanks for the link. Now that you mention (or, quote about) dogs, when I said something to my mom about this she told me one of her dogs was acting strange and went outside and the neighbor's dogs were barking. None of this is unusual by itself of course.

I have lots of family in and around Greenville, SC reporting that they felt it, They said it was strong enough to rattle the dishes.

My cousin posted this, LOL
