‘Was that an earthquake’? – Reports of shaking rattle Charleston social media

Thursday Update: I’ve been monitoring the U.S. Geological Survey overnight and there’s no sign of an earthquake in the Charleston region, not even a tiny one.

——

Last week there were reports of loud booms. Tonight, reports of shaking from Sullivan’s Island to James Island – many within seconds of each other – has the Charleston social media scene rattled.

We’re waiting to hear from the U.S. Geological Survey – earthquakes aren’t uncommon around the Lowcountry but lately they’ve been felt closer to Summerville and Ladson. Otherwise, could just be Seneca Guns again.

Did you feel anything?

  1. We heard the boom and felt out house shake too. This was followed by another loud noise and less intense shake about 3-5 minutes later. That is what a small earth quake and after shock feels like. (James Island)
