Small earthquake hits central Virginia

WASHINGTON — A small earthquake rattled part of central Virginia over the weekend.

The U.S. Geological Survey says that a 2.3 magnitude earthquake hit about 8 miles south of Louisa, in Louisa County, around 4 a.m. on Easter Sunday.

No injuries have been reported.

In August 2011, a magnitude-5.8 earthquake in Louisa County was felt from Georgia to Canada.
