Officials are reporting an earthquake occurred in Chester County early Thursday morning.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 1.7 magnitude earthquake shook Great Falls.
According to USGS, no one has reported they felt the earthquake, but that may be because it happened at 2:02 a.m.

Earthquakes with a magnitude of 2.5 or less are usually not felt but can be recorded by a seismograph.
Great Falls police and fire departments said they didn’t feel it and haven’t heard from others who may have.
“There’s been nothing to my knowledge, and we didn’t receive calls,” said Scott Boyd, fire chief of Great Falls Fire Department.
The last earthquake reported in South Carolina was five months ago in Ladson, according to earthquaketrack.com. That was reported as a 1.9 magnitude earthquake.
