Tremors were felt as far north as Toronto, as far west as Indianapolis and as far south as Metro Atlanta.

Tucker residents had this to say about the effects of the quake:

I sat down on a bed and was "talking" with my dog who was freaking out. Then the bed shook for about a minute.

I was on the second floor of our two story building. I noticed the blinds moving on the windows. My co-worker asked if it was just him, or was there something going on. Others on the first floor didn't feel anything at all.
