North Carolina hit by 5.1 magnitude earthquake, the strongest since 1916

Many North Carolina residents said they felt their homes shaking on Sunday morning in what was later reported as a 5.1 magnitude earthquake, the strongest the state has seen since 1916.

The U.S. Geological Survey said they detected the quake near Sparta, N.C. just after 8 a.m. local time.

The mayor of Sparta, Wes Brinegar, said they've been assessing the town and have mainly seen minimal damage, though some building foundations having cracked as well as his own chimney breaking off. He added that they did "lose" three houses due to them being "deemed unsafe to live in" and have relocated those families. He said there were no reports of serious injuries.

To people who aren’t used to earthquakes: your first instinct is to run outside, but it’s dangerous to be running while the ground is shaking. If you’re really too nervous to just hang where you are, go in the closest door jam or under a table.

Nick Akers
Nick Akers:
Since this is "Global News" I should say that as a resident of North Carolina, earthquakes do happen here, but a 5.1 is rare, so when we feel shaking like that the first thing that comes to mind isn't an earthquake. I live in Charlotte, a large city about 100 miles (160 km) from here in a mid rise apartment building and I woke to it swaying, it was disorienting and felt as though my building was going to collapse, obviously the shaking is much more pronounced the higher you get. If I hadn't experienced the 2011 quake, and a small 3.0 quake that was centered near my parent's home many years ago, I might not have realized what this was, the cameras really don't do the shaking justice, humans experience movement on a micro scale, so when the whole earth shakes, it can be very unsettling.
