An itty bitty earthquake has caused a rumble in the Peach state. Again.
Central Georgia was shaken early Sunday morning when a 2.5 magnitude quake was reported in Wilkinson County. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed that a small earthquake was reported east of Macon early Sunday.
So it was not just a figment of the residents’ imaginations. The epicenter is believed to have been about 6.8 miles east of the city of Gordon.
The Richter Scale does not qualify a 2.5 magnitude quake to be problematic and, in fact, considers the shake “light” even thoug it can be felt. Most damage is minor and the Sunday shake was only reported by two residents, according to the USGS.
