STILLMORE, Ga. – An earthquake was reported early Saturday morning near Stillmore, Georgia.
An initial report from the United States Geological Survey showed a magnitude 4.5 but was later revised to 3.9.
It was reported about 4:05 a.m. local time and hit at a depth of 0.8 km.
Reports of shaking have been received in Savannah, Bluffton, Statesboro and as far away as Columbia, Augusta, Warner Robins and Atlanta, the National Weather Service in Charleston, South Carolina, said.
No reports of damage have been received so far.
The USGS estimates that around 500,000 earthquakes occur each year. Many of those happen deep in Earth’s crust, and without the use of seismographs, they would go undetected. Seismologists estimate that only around 20% of the world’s earthquakes are felt by humans and about 100 each year cause damage.
