A small earthquake near the state line shook both states late Friday, rattling residents hundreds of miles away.
The U.S. Geological Survey’s website reported a quake of 4.1 magnitude at 10:23 p.m. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.
On Saturday, engineers from the state Department of Transportation were out evaluating bridges. Derrec Becker of the South Carolina Emergency Management Division said that’s standard procedure after a quake.
The quake, about 7 miles from Edgefield, S.C. , was felt as far west Atlanta and as far north as Hickory, N.C., both about 150 miles away.
USGS geophysicist Dale Grant said it was a large quake for the area.
