A light earthquake measuring 4.1 on the Richter scale rattled Charleston, S.C., Friday, but there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage, officials said.
Scientists with the National Earthquake Information Center recorded the quake, which occurred at 12:32 p.m. EDT. The temblor was centered about 20 miles north-northwest of Charleston, and was felt by residents of Charleston, Summerville and Columbia, S.C."There were no immediate reports of damages or injuries, and none were to be expected from an earthquake of this magnitude," said Pat Jorgenson, a spokewoman for the U.S. Geological Survey, which operates the National Earthquake Information Center.
She said earthquakes are occasionally felt in the South Carolina city.
