SPARTA, Ga. -- Not all of yesterday's rumbles in Georgia came from the sky.
Data from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) shows that residents in the area of Sparta, Ga. felt an actual earthquake around 9:30 p.m. That is approximately 220 miles NW from Brunswick. The data shows that the quake registered as a 2.4 - very low on the Richter Scale - and originated 3 miles west-southwest of the city in Hancock County.
The USGS are working to gather more details. Did you feel it?
Wednesday night's tremor comes on the same day of prolonged severe weather that moved through Georgia, the second bout of strong storms in in just days.
Three waves of storms dropped large hail, sparked several house fires from lightning, downed trees and spawned possible tornadoes in the metro area.
