CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, SC - Residents along the North Carolina/South Carolina border southeast of Charlotte say they felt a small earthquake Thursday evening.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake was centered around five miles southwest of Mount Croghan, SC in Chesterfield County just before 11 p.m.
People said lamps and other things in their homes shook, but there were no reports of damage.
"I felt it rumble. It felt like a hard, big clap of thunder, you know how it rattles your house sometimes? That's how it felt," said Mitch Rogers.
South Carolina is no stranger to seismic activity. About 15 earthquakes are reported every year.
