A 5.1-magnitude earthquake shook the town of Sparta, North Carolina today, according to the preliminary report from the US Geological Survey. The earthquake is reported to be the strongest quake to shake the state since 1926, according to the North Carolina Geological Survey. Alleghany County Sheriff Bryan Maines was getting ready for church when "stuff started falling off of the wall," he said. The house appeared to shift, and it felt like it might fall down, Maines told CNN. "Started getting some sheet rock damage. My chimney was starting to crack," Maines said. "Several houses with structure damage. We have folks out right now. There are houses that have shifted 1 or 2 inches off their foundation. There are folks who have had to leave their homes because it's not safe inside. It's a pretty big event."
