Earthquak Triggered Curious 911 Calls

As hundreds wondered what caused their homes and businesses to shake during Monday’s earthquakes, Whitley County 911 was busy taking all the curious calls. The 3.8 magnitude earthquake caught the attention of the majority of Southern Kentucky. WKYT reports Whitley County 911 took in dozens of calls. The U.S. Geological Survey pinpoints the 3.8 magnitude earthquake just 40 miles south of Fincastle, Tennessee. However, the shake was felt in every nook and cranny of southern Kentucky. “I tell you what. The ground shook, my trailer shook,” said one of the callers to Whitley County 911. The U.S Geological Survey says it didn’t last long, but it did show up on a seismograph in Lexington.
