"I felt it" reports:
Louisville, TN (Off Air Base Rd) / MMI V (Moderate shaking): Unusual moderate (altho felt strong to us) shaking/rumbling of our house, as we were both inside & both yelled "WHAT WAS THAT?!" Crows & birds flew into the air from our trees and a LOUD 'blast-like' sound came at same time as shaking. No blasting in our area. We live close to the Air Base at Knoxville Airport--off of Air Base Rd. Most unsettling & unusual.
