A magnitude 4.4 quake hit Atlanta at around 4:14 a.m. EST Wednesday. The United States Geological Survey (USGC) reported the quake’s epicenter was 6.8 miles north-northeast of Decatur, Tennessee, at a depth of 6.2 miles.

There were no reports of damages or loss of life. The tremors were felt in Tennessee as well.

Several people took to Twitter to report the quake.

“Did anyone else feel that? Getting calls about a possible #earthquake in the Atlanta area. We felt shaking here at the station. Getting calls from Cobb, Decatur, etc,” Twitter user Ahsley Homrich said.

"Anybody else just feel an earthquake in Atlanta? Seemed pretty sizeable & woke me up. Scary s--t. 4:17 am," one person tweeted, while another user, Nicole Emmett, said, “No, you’re not alone. We ALL felt that earthquake in the newsroom in downtown Atlanta and so did most of Georgia. It’s a 4.4 magnitude quake centered in Tennessee."

Thirteen minutes after the first quake, a 3.3 magnitude aftershock struck the region. Residents in Atlanta said they felt their homes shake.

The 4.4 magnitude quake is likely the strongest earthquake reported feeling their homes shake to hit Georgia since 1974, when a 4.3 magnitude quake was reported.
