My in-laws in GSO felt it. FIL said it lasted about 5 seconds.

Didnít feel a thing in RDU.

FIL said there is a fault line up that way. I was not aware of that.

Yeah, they are finding all these fault lines no one knew existed. The one in Louisa, VA definitely caught everyone off guard.

Sparta was closed off for a bit: no electricity, no water, and burst gas lines.

I didn't feel it but my nephew 8 miles south of me did.

That is on NC 18 just outside Sparta. A Food Lion in town had a whole lot of its inventory thrown off the shelves. The tall brick facade of one of the older buildings downtown is unstable now and in danger of collapsing to the street. Downtown Sparta was already a mess with ongoing pipe work under the streets, but now all of that is having to be rechecked for damage.

Nice map. I'm surprised there are no dots in Japan. That place shook like Elvis when I was there. But that was a while ago.
