USA Today - A minor earthquake has rattled the same Virginia area that was at the center of last year’s East Coast quake. The U.S. Geological Survey says the 2.4-magnitude earthquake occurred around 12:43 a.m. Tuesday. The epicenter was 6 miles southeast of Mineral. That’s where the 5.8-magnitude hit Aug. 23, causing deep cracks in the Washington Monument and broken capstones at the National Monument. No one was injured and no damage was reported in the quake Tuesday. The region has experienced dozens of aftershocks since the earthquake a year ago. - Go To Story
