We had another minor earthquake at 8:57 PM last night. It was centered 30 miles North of the town of Franklin in Macon County. The 3.1 magnitude quake shook buildings mostly in Bryson City, Cherokee, Cullowhee, Franklin, Maggie Valley, Sylva, Waynesville and Whittiers.

Did you feel it where you are?

Glad you specifically said "another".

The local wipe reported "...the seventh noticeable temblor to shake the region in the past year <snippage> Over the past year, four of six other noticeable quakes within 60 miles of Thursday's epicenter were bigger, according to the center. They include a 3.7-magnitude temblor in August centered in Madison County that shook houses as far south as Athens, Ga."

Hmmm. As long as all it does is rattle the windows, it sounds like an interesting experience

Default Let's see...

Things to be scared of in NC that we've discussed this week:

1) Hurricanes
2) Fire ants
3) Thunderstorms
4) Earthquakes
5) Nearby prisons
7) Freaky people in Asheville
8) Extras from "Deliverance" around Asheville

Have I left out something?

I think I'd be more skeered of the NJ cats than the NC bears Though I have a 25lb tuxedo cat who swaggers to the food bowl and makes all the other mowsers stand aside, I still think he'd come out bloody and bowed if he had to take on that marmalade NJ cat

Well, there's a fellow armed with a machete making the rounds of the Food Lions in this area with an intent to rob and terrorize. He still hasn't been caught.

Is there a fault line in the area where the earthquakes have been felt? And is that the only part of NC that gets earthquakes?

I don't know why earthquakes scare me. I'm not afraid of fire ants, thunderstorms, nearby prisons or tornadoes (do you guys get any of those?).

I guess I'm a little bit afraid of a fellow armed with a machete and hurricanes!
