Earthquake Rattles Georgia: ‘Felt Like Bomb Went Off’

A 2.8-magnitude earthquake rattled Georgia overnight, and some people said they didn’t just feel it.

Social media users also reported hearing the tremor.

“I didn’t feel it but I heard it,” one person wrote on the Gilmer County Sheriff’s Office Facebook page. “It was the first one while I was awake! I honestly thought it was a plane or something.”

“I thought somebody set a bomb outside our bedroom window it was so loud,” another person wrote on Twitter.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake hit at about 11:45 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 20. It shook the ground roughly 10 miles northeast of Eton, a town near the Tennessee border.
