Update 22:50 UTC : A Kentucky State Police spokesperson told local media that no injuries have been reported so far, although they have received some reports of minor property damage (as we had expected shortly after the earthquake).

Update 22:40 UTC : We do thank all the people who were so kind to write their experience on this page. These testimonies are very helpful for further analysis of this earthquake.

Important update 18:42 UTC : The preliminary hypocenter depth has been modified from the preliminary 1.1 km into 19.9 km, a HUGE and GOOD difference (compare it with an explosion at a distance of 1.1 km or 23.7 km). We truly LIKE this news !

Update 18:17 UTC : Jessica Winton at the U.S. National Weather Service in Morristown mention unconfirmed reports that there was damage in the immediate area of the quake (ER : this looks normal to us, but we think that the extend of the damage will be minor).
- At the Blackey Public Library, which is just west of Whitesburg in Letcher County and about 200 miles southeast of Louisville. Library worker Bonnie Asher said she was coming downstairs when she heard a big boom. Asher said the entire building shook and the lights flickered off and on, and at first she thought maybe a plane had crashed nearby (courtesy

Update 18:05 UTC : People are reporting fallen objects, so our above advice is certainly not overstated.
- 23000 people have (theoretically) experienced a moderate MMI V shaking and 223000 a light MMI IV shaking.

Update 18:01 UTC : The earthquake was felt as far away as Cincinnati, Ohio, and Atlanta, Georgia. So far, no reports of damage. People living in the greater epicenter area will have to be prepared for aftershocks which can go up to the same Magnitude than the mainshock.
Please check all the pieces in house which can fall and fix them or put them on the ground.

Update 17:56 UTC : Somebody living in Hazard wrote us : The whole house shook for about a minute. Several neighbors' phone service went out. is happy that this person from Hazard could at least reach us, which means that his computer or smartphone was still able to reach us.
-  Knox County police is reporting that they have not yet received any reports of damage so far, but based on our experience this is far too soon to be conclusive.

Update 17:49 UTC : We are trying to find some breking news on the nearby TV station websites as we want to know if the area had some damage or not (we do not think so), but .....

Preliminary data show a rather strong earthquake near Knoxville, USA
Please let us know what you have experienced by filling in a form
We have now some more details
The Magnitude would be a M4.3 at an extremely shallow depth  at 13km W of Whitesburg, Kentucky
What especially concerns us is the extremely shallow depth of this earthquake (preliminary value of 1.1 km)
The earthquake was felt (as you can see below) in many States !
If the preliminary epicenter location is correct, only houses in the immediate vicinity of Hazard and Whitesburg (location near the epicenter) may have some cracks, fallen objects in houses etc. If people from Hazard are reading this article, please send us your experience. Thank You.
