GRAY COURT, S.C. (AP) — The U.S. Geological Survey says a small 2.3 magnitude earthquake has been reported in the northwestern part of South Carolina.

Minor tremors were felt for a few seconds at 12:27 p.m. Tuesday. No injuries were reported, and area law enforcement agencies said they didn't receive calls from people calling about the tremors.

A geophysicist with the agency, Julie Dutton, says she doesn't think many people would have felt the earthquake.

The earthquake was centered in Gray Court, about 30 miles south of Greenville.
