Another 2.7 yesterday.  If you don't have earthquake insurance now may be a good time.

For those of you with earthquake insurance who do you use?  Our insurance company, who we really like and covers our home and cars, doesn't offer an option for earthquake coverage.  Yes, I'm in East TN and realize the odds of damage are small, but we're in an older brick home and it wouldn't take much of a rattle to really do expensive damage.

Gotta be honest, with the increased frequency of these quakes Iím starting to think that the big one isnít far off. I donít know of any fracking going on in this area that I could point the finger at as a cause.

I am having that same feeling.

Not saying we are going to see anything quite like 1812, but a solid 5.5-6.5 or something like that wouldnít surprise me in the least.

This is exactly what I told my wife the other day. I doubt a 7+ earthquake is going to happen by 5 to 6 is actually a real good possibility.  That is enough to do a lot of costly damage to peoples homes and businesses.

I use ameriprise for my home insurance and they offer earthquake policies.

2.6 in Manchester about 30 minutes ago. It should have been felt considering it was almost right at the surface. Iím sure a few things have been knocked off of walls

Not all that far from one of a similar size that occurred toward Shelbyville back in January. Weird that a couple of these tremors have occurred in Middle TN in recent months... to say nothing of the swarm that has occurred in East TN and more recently the spike in activity on the NMFZ. What's going on here?

The one near Manchester was close to Arnold Air Force Base, and the depth looks like something at the surface. I wonder if that was an artificial cause.

Arnold AFB is a propulsion lab. They haven't used large ordnance like that in several years.

I've not really kept up with the activity surrounding the NMSZ.  Is the current swarm anything unusual in terms of intensity/frequency?

Nothing crazy on intensity yet, I don't think, but I think there is for sure an uptick in frequency.

Yeah- but, this is an increase in activity. Sometimes, that can be a precursor for larger events, but not always (or even usually).

I check earthquakes weekly because I am a geology nerd too and things have been busier than normal over the past 3 months with small quakes.  They could very well be fore/aftershocks from the 3.7 one.  We are about 20 years over due for a 5 - 6.5 event here though.
