It happens every now and then especially in the mountain areas of North Carolina.  And it happened over the weekend.  A small earthquake shook a small town near Asheville on Saturday.

It only registered 1.8 on the Richter Scale in Weaverville and no damage or injury was reported.  Weaverville is about 135 miles west of Charlotte.  The Richter scale calculates an earthquakes magnitude from the amplitude of the earthquake’s largest seismic wave.

Some may not have even felt the tremor.  To learn more you can get all the information from the Charlotte Observer.
