Felt it here in Roan Mountain, TN! Although I'm sure it was just seconds, I was wondering when it was going
to stop and was concerned if it went any longer it might get worse.

Subject: [ETWNC] Sparta Earthquake
Just wanted to know if those who live in the area near Sparta NC (mountains you know) came through this morning's 5.1 magnitude earthquake. My wife saw a news article that mistakenly had the epicenter near Johnson City and I immediately emailed Fred Alsop. Sparta is a bit east of JC, due north of Wilkesboro and due south of Wytheville VA. Hope everything stayed on the tracks, I mean shelves. People I go to church with felt it just west of me. I was outside at 8 am and never noticed.
