Two earthquakes shook eastern Tennessee early Wednesday morning, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. 

The USGS recorded two earthquakes near Decatur, Tennessee (about 250 miles from Cincinnati) between 4:14 and 4:27 a.m.

The first was a 4.4 magnitude earthquake just south of of Watts Bar Lake at 4:14 a.m.

A 3.3 magnitude quake hit just thirteen minutes later.

No damage has been reported so far, but reports of people feeling this earthquake have come in from Atlanta, Chattanooga, Nashville, Huntsville and Knoxville.
