Minor earthquake rattles southeastern Tenn., NC
52 minutes ago



DUCKTOWN, Tenn. — A minor earthquake rattled the mountainous area of southeastern Tennessee, western North Carolina and northern Georgia on Saturday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The 3.2-magnitude temblor happened about 11 a.m. Saturday. Its epicenter was located about 55 miles east of Chattanooga, near the town of Ducktown.

Becky Cearley, a dispatcher with the Polk County Sheriff's Department, described the incident as "pretty intense."

"It shook the whole entire building for what seemed like forever, but it was just a matter of seconds," she said. She said she received no reports of damage or injuries.

A dispatcher with the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office in North Carolina, just east of the epicenter, also said there were no reports of damage or injuries, but a couple of people did call wondering what had happened.

The U.S. Geological Survey received reports of light shaking as far away as Gainesville, Ga., about 60 miles to the south.

Residents of Dorchester County were jolted Saturday morning by an earthquake that measured 3.2 on the Richter scale.
Erin Beutel, associate professor of geology at the College of Charleston and director of the S.C. Earthquake Education and Preparedness Program, said the quake is considered mild and in line with the hiccups routinely seen in the Summerville area.

She compared it to nothing greater than the jolt you might feel of a train going by a house. She expected damage to be minimal, if at all.
“We have a couple to several of these a year,” she said, adding she does not expect this to be a signal of anything stronger to come.
But she did say this bump could be a reason for the public to understand that earthquake preparedness should be something everyone should at least plan for.
