Iíve often wondered how the landscape would change when the big one happens.

Georgia would lose more water and hate us even more.

I wish that I had taken plate tectonics/seismicity and Geology of Tennessee but sadly those were electives only offered once every 2 years and didn't fit into my schedule. Plus I was more into Soils, Geomorphology and Environmental. Still a good decision for my career though.

I was born and raised in the Bootheel of Missouri.  I often wonder when the big one will happen.  Crazy to think about the fact that the strongest earthquake in the lower 48's history was right where I was from

Just had an earthquake in the Knoxville area.  Felt around Papermill area, as well as Halls and Fountain City.  Pretty good shake!!!  So I'm sure it was felt in other areas as well.

ETA - 3.6 magnitude, approximately 6 miles from LaFollette.

It apparently didn't make it as far as Cedar Bluff as we didn't feel or hear anything, but it's rare to have anything right here in the city.

Local news says South Knoxville had a little magnitude 1.9 this morning.  Didn't feel it west of town but things have been rather active this month.
