Drudge links news that there was a 4.9 magnitude quake near Fort Payne in the northeast part of the state and famous primarily for being the home of the country music group Alabama. Freakish. I lived in and out of Alabama since 1980 and don’t recall any mention of an earthquake during that time.
Update (13:32): AP reports the quake lasted 45 minutes and was felt as far away as North Carolina.
Update 2 (13:54): PoliBlogger, who lives in Montgomery (south-central) didn’t feel a thing.
