Wow... A 4.1 Earthquake in South Carolina!
More info as it comes.
22 Miles north of Augusta...
I felt it in Greenville.
House shook enough that I went outside to see if a large tree had fallen or something, but first impression was earthquake.
Hope all is well with no injuries. Check to make sure the Iranian Navy didn’t start shelling the east coast.
Was this felt in Charleston??
Hope Enterprise Mill is ok. I worked on the museum there and am rather fond of it.
wonder if obama finally got some officers to go along with his nuke false flag...
There are power outages. A water tower was damaged and is leaking in Edgefield. The hospital there is evacuating patients.
Yep. Felt it here. Everyone’s all worried and freaked out and I’m just sort of...not caring.
I didnt feel anything near Charlotte
I felt something over here in east Georgia about 1-2 hours ago. You could even see my computer screen shake. It only lasted about 3-4 seconds. I was lying in bed and felt it shake to house. I thought it was a weird feeling, and first thing I thought of that it was a small earthquake tremor.
This is good news for Obama!
He now has a band new natural crisis to spend OUR tax dollars on: GLOBAL SHAKING Awareness !
Has anyone noticed any aftershocks?
Many people reporting they felt it in many different places:
A mag 4 quake is just at the point when it is maybe noticeable, with or without damage.
We have had at least 7 of them in the Philippines so far this month, and several within 100 miles of me.
The mag 8 quake that hit Bohol recently did considerable damage on Bohol, and some damage here on Cebu, mostly in Cebu city.
We have a very good web site for quakes: http://www.phivolcs.dost.gov.ph/
The house seen in the opening page is quite interesting. Read the caption.
The second link gives us up to the min. quake notices:
7.3 is a big quake
Sorry. Gas. Greek food.
That actually varies a lot depending on ones' distance to the epicenter, the depth of the quake, the local geology, the structure one is in, and so on. A recent 2.6 near LaCenter, KY, was surprisingly "noisy", and was felt by quite a few people who were right on top of it.
yes I sure felt it.. I’m halfway between Columbia and Augusta
I poked around Phivolcs for a bit - very interesting, including the two “smoldering” (?) volcanoes, Taal and Mayon.
“That actually varies a lot depending on ones’ distance to the epicenter, the depth of the quake”
Yes, if your on the epicenter, you can feel most any tremor.
I am referring to quakes that are 50-100 miles away.
If I am sitting perfectly still in my chair, I might feel a
very slight 2 second vibration from a mag 4 quake on Bohol, which is about 50 km from me. I can see Bohol from my beach.
Judging by the chart, they seem to consider anything over a 4 to be significant, as they highlight the magnitude in a darker black.
By the way, one can register for the USGS Earthquake Notification System. http://earthquake.usgs.gov/
They will email you when there is a significant quake anywhere in the world. I have been a member for about five years.
First Climate Change, now Tectonic Plate Change.
I am in Greenville also. We certainly felt it here!
We are in Summerville and didn’t notice anything.
I felt it here in NE Columbia.
Lindsay Graham read his latest poll numbers?
Fracking? Globull Warming? Obama, Mmm Mmm Mmmm?
It’s the ice I tell ya. It weighs a lot more than when it just rains. /s
No word from my son who lives in Ladson - he normally posts anything like this to facebook in a few minutes.
HAARP - Nice time to test it. Friday evening.
HAARP Wheel event....story from late 2013:
Felt nothing here in Savannah.
I slept through one near this same location back in 71 or 72. It happens.
There are several fault lines that run through the Georgia/South Carolina midlands.
There use to be a big mud volcano near Winder, Ga. It dried up shortly after the big New Madrid quake. Some speculate that they were related. I am skeptical.
