As if a winter storm wasn’t enough last week, a small earthquake near the Georgia-South Carolina line shook both states late Friday, rattling residents hundreds of miles away.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports a quake of 4.1 magnitude was recorded at 10:23 p.m. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage. On Saturday, South Carolina DOT engineers were out evaluating bridges – standard procedure after a quake. The quake, about 7 miles from Edgefield, South Carolina, was felt as far west Atlanta and as far north as Hickory, both about 150 miles away.
