Bah, nothing, most should not have felt it. I recall a 5.2 in St Louis. That was not a big deal either. Felt the shaking, lasted what seemed like about 90 seconds, probably less. Woke me up around 5 in the morning, knew what it was right away. Not scary, no damage, not a big deal.

Journalists- there's an aspect missing in the story - how far is it to the nearest fracking, or waste injection well? That's going to be coming up- might as well address it right off the bat. SC does not have fracking wells for extraction- but it could very easily have injection wells; and they're not that easy to find out about. This is an odd place for an earthquake.

Yes it was not a major earth quake and there were no major damages, but when you have been reeling from the effects of an epic ice storm, which would have made the hardiest of any Minnesotan whine, an earth quake that sounded like an exploding freight train that shook your house for thirty seconds, keeping in mind that over 200,000 lost electricity during said storm and tens of thousands were still without , is big news.
