Second Minor Earthquake in 48 Hours Strikes Haywood County

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

According to the USGS (United States Geological Survey), a minor earthquake of 2.4 magnitude struck Haywood County in the Beaverdam Township on Thursday evening just before 6.30pm. It was initially reported as 3.1, but a review by a seismologist resulted in a downgrade of the intensity.

The epicenter was located 40.42 miles to the northeast of the Macon County Courthouse and was 2.11 miles east northeast of the magnitude 2.6 earthquake that struck just before 7.30 pm on Tuesday, the 23rd of May. [LINK

 Earthquakes of this magnitude occur perhaps three or four times a typical year within a hundred-mile radius of Macon County.


As of 8.00pm, 6 people in Haywood County reported to the USGS that they felt it it, and one in Lousville, Kentucky claimed to have felt it. If you felt it, you can fill out a survey on the USGS website [LINK]. The information will assist geologists in studying earthquakes in our region. You have until May 31, 2024, to report your experience. This section will be updated on Friday morning as more people report on this event.
