A small earthquake has been reported in West Virginia early Thursday morning, following the 5.8 quake in Virginia that sent schockwaves across the Mountain State and East Coast Tuesday.

The U.S. Geological Survey says there was small earthquake under Greenbrier County.

They say it happened about 10 miles from White Sulphur Springs and started at a depth of 12-kilometers underground.

The 2.7-magnitude quake was reported just before 2 a.m., but no one reported feeling the effects in White Sulphur Springs.

Multiple mini-quakes struck Braxton County last year.
