The first was reported around 3:30 a.m. near Greeneville, Tennessee, which is about 50-miles from Weaverville, North Carolina, according to WLOS.

Officials said it was a small, 2.2-magnitude earthquake.

The second happened just before 4:30 p.m., nearly 13 hours later, in Marshall, North Carolina.

Earthquakes of 2.5-magnitude or less are usually not felt, but officials said they can be recorded by a seismograph.

WLOS reported their viewers have felt small earthquakes before.

No injuries or damage was reported from the quakes.

The USGS said the Eastern Tennessee seismic zone is one of the most active in the southeast and it extends into parts of Georgia and Alabama.
