3 more quakes. Are we seeing the beginning of a quake swarm in the eastern US?

Re: Magnitude 2.8 Earthquake strikes the State of Georgia, USA.
I find it a bit weird for Georgia to be having earthquakes even if it is low on the scale but 2 or 3 happening within 24 hours. Hopefully it stops but if not then it is something to keep an eye on.

Actually, yes they do.

Do you actually live here?

Thats why Georgia Tech maintains a seismology department that monitors tremors. Most of them however are so small that they're never worth mentioning.

The Chattahoochee river bed for example, is a part of a long dead fault line... and the entire state is filled with some of North America's most ancient of fault lines; hence the Appalachian Mountains are the oldest mountain range in the entire world and were at one time as large as the Alps and Rockies!

There are Native American legends of a massive earthquake rocking the South Eastern lands of North America, long before "white man" first arrived...

Atlanta has had 2 earthquakes in the 4.0 range over the past 8 years... but they were so insignificant that they didn't really do much other then rattle some windows and were not worth any major media attention other then local mention.
Psalm 90:4 .. 2 Peter 3:8
1 Day to God, is 1000 years on Earth.

Do the Math, Genesis was the Neolithic Revolution!

The 7 "Days" of Creation (including His 1 Day of Rest) were actually 7000 years, add that to the current 6000 Years of the Hebrew Calender dating Genesis to the Present, and you have 12,000 - 14,000 years! Right smack in the middle of the Neolithic Revolution, when the "Homo Sapien" species learned how to... "grow a brain"!

It doesn't seem like a big deal. Looking at the magnitude of the quake, it seems ridiculous to even bring up the subject. BUT if you live in the southeastern part of the US, it is a big deal. Let's put it this way:-According to NOAA, the US averages 1000 - 1200 tornados annually. The Midwest, Ohio Valley, and the Southeastern states are hit by 95% of the tornados. That is common and not a huge surprise BUT when the southeast region has earthquake swarms, no matter the magnitude, that is a BIG deal.-USGS: The world's greatest earthquake zone, the circum-Pacific seismic belt, is found along the rim of the Pacific Ocean, where about 81 percent of the world's largest earthquakes occur. That belt extends from Chile, northward along the South American coast through Central America, Mexico, the West Coast of the United States,....
So hearing about earthquakes on the US west coast isn't odd at all, but if the western coast of the US had a tornado outbreak, it would be a HUGE deal.
