East Tennessee has another earthquake

A 3.0 magnitude earthquake was recorded early this morning near Alcoa, the website of the United States Geological Survey said.

Not many people reported feeling the earthquake, which registered as a II on USGS’s Community Determined Intensity scale. 

A II or III on the scale means there was likely no damage with weak shaking, according to USGS. East Tennessee has seen a lot of these more minor earthquakes since the beginning of December, when the largest earthquake in the area in decades, a magnitude 4.4, hit near Decatur, causing minor damage.
