Folks in Jackson County, Alabama, earlier today were rattled by a magnitude 2.4 earthquake that struck about 7.5 miles beneath the earth's surface, according to a preliminary report from the U.S. Geological Service.

The quake struck around noon about six miles east of Skyline or 10 miles north of Scottsboro off of County Road 33 in a remote area between Moody Gap and Clemmons Point, the USGS reports.

A magnitude 2 quake is usually only felt by a few people at rest, while a magnitude 3 quake is quite noticeable to people indoors, according to the USGS.
