Did you feel the earth move last night?
Scientists are reporting there was earthquake 45 miles south of Charlotte in Great Falls, South Carolina, around 9 p.m. That’s in Chester County.
The U.S. Geological Survey says it was a 1.7 magnitude at a depth of 2.9 kilometers. The South Carolina Emergency Management Division tweeted out.
If you missed it, you’re not alone. Earthquakes of that magnitude are largely only felt by a few people, most of them on the upper floors of buildings.
