The second small earthquake in two days rattled the Summerville area early Friday.
According to the United States Geological Survey, a 2.2 magnitude earthquake was recorded three miles southwest of ladson and four miles south-southeast of Summerville at 4:39 a.m.
It's the sixth earthquake in Summerville in less than a month, and the second in two days.
According to the National Earthquake Information Center, a 2.5 magnitude earthquake happened 4 miles southwest of Summerville at 3:14 p.m. Thursday with reports of moderate ground shaking and windows rattling in homes.
No damage was reported, according to the NEIC.
Dr. Steven Jaume, a geologist at the College of Charleston, says the earthquake was reported around the Lincolnville area.
The report was also confirmed by the National Weather Service in Charleston. A number of people called in to Live 5 News Thursday afternoon saying the ground was shaking along Trolley Road, Hwy. 78, and Berlin G Myers Parkway.
Another caller said he felt his house rumbling around 3:13 p.m.
Two 2.2-magnitude earthquakes were recorded on Sept. 14 and Sept. 7, a 1.1 magnitude earthquake was recorded Aug. 25, and a 2.0 magnitude tremor was recorded two days prior.
It's not unusual for small quakes to be felt in the Summerville area. The area is near the fault that caused a magnitude 7.3 earthquake that killed 110 people in 1886.
