Mon, 18 Mar 14:29 UTCM 2.3 / 0.6 km - [info] (1824 km) 0km WSW of Maryville, Tennessee (USA)
MOSHEIM, TN / not felt
Maryville tn / MMI VI (Strong shaking): Loud extended crack. Sound as if there was crash outside the house without a collision impact. Or a loud sharp explosion with a concussion wave or report.
Maryville, TN / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was sitting in my recliner and felt it shake slightly side-to-side, and then I heard a noise in my bookcase and saw the TV barely swaying (it is on a small stand in the bookcase). By the time I looked at the clock and noted that it was 10:29am EDT, it was over. I live 1.36 miles straight-line from GZ.
