With the new year upon us, just a reminder to home owners on the west side of the state - add a Earthquake policy to your homeowners insurance!  All it would take is a 4.5 in the NMSZ to settle one side of your house and crack your slab and your house is worthless.  A 4.5+ is well over 90% likely in the next 50 years. Not sure about your insurers but for mine it was an additional $300 annually which is money well spent.  It won't take an apocalyptic quake to ruin your day.

We had a 2.7 last night. First one Iíve felt since I was a kid. Sounded like a truck hit the house.

I'll never forget the way that 4.0 felt in Knoxville back in December 2018.

I was pulling an all-nighter for a final exam, and all of the sudden, everything started shaking. Took me half a minute to realize that was a real earthquake. I hustled over to TNWX and posted within a minute of the occurrence. Turns out it verified, and the epicenter was something like 60 miles SSW of Knoxville. Strongest in East Tennessee since 1973!

Interesting stuff- thanks for sharing.

Realizing we have a historical footprint here that goes back only 400 years or so, you just never know what kind of geological clocks are ticking underneath us. These kinds of evidences bear this out.

Pretty sure I heard it as it sounded like some distant booms and no storms were around during the time.  Didn't feel anything though.
