Magnitude 2.6 Earthquake May 3 GEORGIA, USA

This morning about 1:50 AM I’m woken by what I’ll call a vibration [get your heads out of the gutter]. At the same time there are a couple birds singing that should be nesting, and the dogs are barking. It’s now 4:37 AM and I’ve been up since. Couldn’t go back to sleep.

So I decide to look and see if there was an earthquake. Nope, no earthquake this morning. However I did find one that went unnoticed, at least by me. Maybe it was reported in the news and I missed it. Probably not as it was only a magnitude 2.6.

Here are the details:
