The temblor struck at 10:23 p.m. about 7 miles west of
Edgefield, South Carolina, and at a depth of 3 miles, the U.S.
Geological Survey said.
"It shook pretty good," said Corporal Lisa Howard, a dispatcher
for the Edgefield County Sheriff's Office. "The phone lines are
still going crazy with people calling in."
A police dispatcher in Claxton, Georgia, said there had been no
indications of damage or injuries.
