We're not used to this and I am posting this up swiftly but multiple reports from locations 200 miles apart of a mild tremor in the Carolinas.

More text and 'stuff' coming as I get it going.

Report in, Southeast Kossacks. Let's figure out what and where this is, because last time I felt a quake the Washington Monument cracked.

10:37 EST: Atlanta reports tremors too.

10:39 Greenville, Spartanburg, Columbia and Charleston (SC) reporting in.
Also August, GA and of course Charlotte (NC) here.

Looks like Edgefield SC is our epicenter.

Shakemap here

10:57PM EST: Reports at this point are mostly on the "Oh, that was nothing!" stage. Delaware reports no tremors, so we're not talking of a Great Quake of '11 repeat as of this posting. Looks like we have as good an excuse for an open chat as any. Carry on. :)

11:07 EST: Myrtle Beach TV provides graphic of where quake was felt. What's interesting is how the quake was felt more strongly at greater distance in a band running parallel to the mountains. Is there  Doctorate of Geology in the house?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
