Earthquake hits West Ala. County for Second Time in a Month
EUTAW, Ala. (AP) -- A small earthquake has hit a west Alabama county for the second time in a month.
The U.S. Geological survey reports a magnitude 3.4 earthquake occurred in Greene County on Wednesday afternoon. It was centered about 11 miles northwest of Eutaw and 5 miles underground.
The quake happened just four weeks after a magnitude 3.8 earthquake occurred about 10 miles northwest of Eutaw. That quake was about 3 miles beneath the surface of the Earth.
No damage was reported in either incident. But reports say Greene County resident Jonathan Rice says he felt the latest earthquake during his lunch break from work.
