Report: 2.2 earthquake rattles North Carolina counties

Did you hear a loud boom or feel your home shake overnight? It was an earthquake.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed a 2.2 magnitude earthquake struck near Archdale, North Carolina in the middle of the night. 

WFMY reports the shaking occurred at 12:32 a.m. Tuesday, March 26. Many reported feeling and hearing the quake from their homes in Guilford and Randolph Counties.

The long, booming sound was enough to reportedly shake the whole house in some cases.
