Earthquake Today 2014 Hits South Carolina East of Atlanta, Georgia

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – An earthquake today 2014 just hit South Carolina and Georgia, just east of Atlanta. The earthquake today February 14, 2014 began moments ago. Damage assessment is pending.

Officials tell news that a 4.4 magnitude South Carolina earthquake today hit just after 10:23 pm local time. The quake was shallow. It began only three miles below ground level. As a result the quake could be felt across the region.

USGS indicates to news that the quake was seven miles west of Edgefield, South Carolina. The quake was nineteen miles north of Evans, Georgia. It was east of Atlanta, Georgia and west of North Augusta. Reps tell news that the quake was roughly sixty miles southwest of Colombia, South Carolina.

USGS reports to news that “Earthquakes in the central and eastern U.S., although less frequent than in the western U.S., are typically felt over a much broader region. East of the Rockies, an earthquake can be felt over an area as much as ten times larger than a similar magnitude earthquake on the west coast.” They add that “A magnitude 4.0 eastern U.S. earthquake typically can be felt at many places as far as 100 km (60 mi) from where it occurred, and it infrequently causes damage near its source. “

    I was in downtown Augusta, GA and it was felt fairly well there for about 10 seconds. I immediately got texts from other soldiers in and around FT Gordon, GA who also felt it. One friend reported that it “rattled some stuff on shelves”.

    Felt in Greer SC around 10:25. Felt one much less 2 years ago and it felt like the washing machine was shaking the house. The one tonight was much stronger: it felt like being in a boat and stopping in the middle of the lake, like rocking over the waves created by the boat.

    Although we have had 13 reported in SC this year, we don’t usually feel them. This one was crazy for us because we don’t have them to the extent of actually feeling it.

    Freaky weather lately. Our crapload of snow from February 11-13 just melted today, but we still have it on the ground – now an earthquake… getting alittle too odd for comfort.

    It woke me up last night. My wife and I felt it for about 20 to 30 seconds. The bed was gently shaking back and forth. We live in Morganton, North Carolina which is located on I-40 roughly 50 miles north west of Charlotte.

    It shook our house pretty good in Young Harris, Ga. We were watching a movie and it definitely got our attention. I immediately looked outside and noticed no wind. We felt a mild tremor several years ago in the early morning that was strong enough to wake the kids up.

    I live in Winder, Ga & my husband & I felt it. I was asleep on the couch & it actually woke me up. The floor felt like it was moving under our feet & my husband sat up on the couch & said, What the *** was that? … we figured it had to be a minor quake. glad to know we were right, & not just imagining it.
