There were no reports of damage or injuries following three fairly small earthquakes in Tennessee over a period of about 25 hours.
The United States Geological Survey, or USGS, registered a 2.2-magnitude earthquake at approximately 7:52 a.m. Tuesday, about three miles south of Sweetwater, Tennessee.
About five hours earlier, around 2:48 a.m., a 1.6-magnitude earthquake was recorded about five miles east-southeast of Vonore.
The USGS also registered a 2.2-magnitude earthquake around 6:40 a.m. Monday, nearly six miles west of Loretto.
No damage or injuries were reported in any of the incidents.
The region experiences more seismic activity than just about anywhere else in the eastern United States, though a December 4.4 magnitude quake near Decatur was unusually intense for this area.
