The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 4.4 earthquake struck eastern Tennessee and could be felt in Atlanta.

The light earthquake occurred Wednesday around 4:14 a.m. about 7 miles (11 kilometers) northeast of Decatur. About 13 minutes later, a 3.3 magnitude aftershock then struck.

There did not appear to be any immediate reports of injuries.

I felt a few earthquakes when we lived in Eastern Tennessee. It was sort of like a loud bang and then nothing. We lived in East Tennessee for 24 years. I can hardly believe we've been living here in Middle Tennessee for 12 years already. Time sure does fly by fast.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Most of the Atlanta folks thought a large tractor trailer had hit a bump nearby.

every so often there is a quake in the Appalachian mountains. But there is an
earthquake zone near Charleston,SC that can cause infrequent grief - much like
the Madrid fault in Missouri

The only reason we "felt" it, our dogs woke up and barked and I heard the handle pulls on the dresser drawer jingling. It didn't wake me up. Didn't know what to make of it at the time either.
