South Carolina Experiences 3.2 Magnitude Earthquake

south carolinaThe United States Geological Survey department (USGS) reported another earthquake has just hit South Carolina. The 3.2 magnitude earthquake’s epicenter is 7 miles west of the town of Edgefield.  This follows just days after the 4.1 magnitude quake dubbed the “Valentine’s Day Quake” that shook the area and cause millions to panic on Friday. This is a strange string of events for an area not known for earthquakes, experts are saying it’s a “once every two decade” event. There is no official word on damage or if any one was injured in this recent aftershock.
