COLUMBIA, S.C. — Officials are reporting an aftershock from the earthquake that shook a large part of South Carolina and Georgia on Friday.
The U.S. Geological Survey's website reported a 3.2 magnitude earthquake at 3:23 p.m. Sunday in Edgefield County, just a few miles from the 4.1 magnitude quake on Friday.
Sunday's earthquake was only felt about 35 miles from its center, while Friday's quake was reported more than 150 miles away.
Inspectors checked bridges, nuclear plants and dams in the area, but no major damage was reported after Friday's quake.
Sunday's aftershock was significantly smaller.
