GASSAWAY, W.Va. -- West Virginia has been hit by its second reported earthquake in about a week.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.8-magnitude earthquake occurred in Braxton County at 5:19 a.m. Sunday.
The epicenter was 8 miles west-southwest of Gassaway and 11 miles west-southwest of Sutton.
No injuries or damage was reported.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 2.9-magnitude earthquake in Logan County on March 27. The epicenter was about 7 miles from Man.
Virginia Tech seismologist Martin Chapman has said the Logan County incident may not have been an earthquake. Chapman said that tremor could have been caused by mining activity.
