CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed a 2.4-magnitude earthquake hit Summerville Sunday evening.

Initial reports from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources listed the quake as a 2.3-magnitude.

USGS officials say it hit at approximately 10:59 p.m. about 3.3 miles southwest of Summerville and about 5.9 miles west of Ladson. It had a depth of about 3.1 miles.
