Small ones in South Carolina & California a couple of days back
Residents of Dorchester County were jolted Saturday morning by an earthquake that measured 3.2 on the Richter scale.
Erin Beutel, associate professor of geology at the College of Charleston and director of the S.C. Earthquake Education and Preparedness Program, said the quake is considered mild and in line with the hiccups routinely seen in the Summerville area.

She compared it to nothing greater than the jolt you might feel of a train going by a house. She expected damage to be minimal, if at all.
“We have a couple to several of these a year,” she said, adding she does not expect this to be a signal of anything stronger to come.
But she did say this bump could be a reason for the public to understand that earthquake preparedness should be something everyone should at least plan for.
