December 6 2009 Earthquakes in Baldwin county, Milledgeville, Georgia

Many people in Baldwin, Wilkinson and Washington Counties say they felt a tremor Sunday.
The U.S. Geological Survey's website confirmed a small earthquake with a 3.2 magnitude in Washington County just before 7:30 p.m.
The website says the quake was about 7 miles west of Deepstep in Washington County and 12 miles east-southeast of Milledgeville.
Linda Webster from Milledgeville called the 13WMAZ newsroom and said she felt the tremble.
"It was like a big truck rumbling," she said.
Dwayne Hancock, who lives between Milledgeville and Gordon, said he felt the quake around 7:25 p.m. He said it shook the glass around his fireplace, but didn't cause any damage. He described it as a "soft rumble."

No one who called the Eyewitness Newsroom reported any damage or injuries.
