SC earthquakeA 4.1 magnitude earthquake struck South Carolina on Friday night, jolting residents in the Midlands and in two other states.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit at 10:23 p.m. about seven miles west-northwest of Edgefield, S.C. It occurred three miles underground.

Thousands of people reported feeling a heavy shaking for several seconds. The tremor was felt across South Carolina, and as far away as downtown Atlanta and Greensboro, N.C.

"I thought a train was passing through," Marie Wade wrote in an e-mail to WXLT. "I live in Cope S.C., and I have a crack in the bedroom ceiling and below my kitchen cabinets."

While the earthquake was relatively minor, one of this size isn't a common occurrence in the state.
