Georgia earthquake – Sure, why not?

Posted by Dan Whisenhunt February 14, 2014

EarthquakeApparently Georgia experienced a 4.1 magnitude earthquake Friday.

People on various social media channels in the metro area said they felt it. I have to confess that I didn’t feel anything. But you know, it’s been a crazy week.

The earthquake was weaker than first reported, and the numbers have been revised.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution says the quake measured 4.1 on the Richter Scale and the epicenter was northeast of Augusta.

WYFF in South Carolina is reporting that people there felt it, too. CNN has the most complete report on it that I’ve seen.

Did you feel it? If so, please tell us about your experience in the comments section.

    Yes! I felt it! I live just north of Augusta in Evans, and I’ve never experienced an earthquake! I stood under a doorway until the shaking stopped, then walked outside to find my neighbors looking around like me! They are warning us of aftershocks, but I do NOT want to experience this ever again!!

    Here’s the USGS “Did you feel it?” earthquake map for it–looks like lots of people reported feeling it. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/dyfi/events/us/c000mr27/us/index.html

    We felt it (in Decatur)! The kid and I were watching TV. The floor shook like we’ve never felt – I looked at my watch and it said 1025p or so. I said to her that was NOT a passing truck. Went online and the USGS and GTs websites both confirmed a tremor.

    We live in the Artisan – I’m wondering if being higher up in a taller building makes these “easier to feel”

    We felt it in Oakhurst. About 5 seconds of shaking. Moved the bed and the sofa.
