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!
