FORSYTH COUNTY, GA (FOX Carolina) - The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office posted on Facebook that dispatchers took dozens of calls after a small earthquake Wednesday night.

"Yes folks that was indeed a 1.8 Earthquake many of you felt around Northeast Forsyth tonight," Sheriff Freeman said in the post. At least according to our friends at the US Geological Service. Dozens of calls to 911 and FCSO but thankfully no damage reported.

"Remember it’s 2020, don’t act like y’all are surprised. What’s next a Blizcanenadoquake? Remember only 22 days left in this year," the sheriff concluded.
The quake happened around 8:30 p.m. 8.2 miles from Buford, and 40 miles northeast of Atlanta, according to the USGS.
