An earthquake shook parts of North Carolina near the Virginia border in Wilkes County on Saturday night.
The 2.4 magnitude quake hit around 9:50 p.m. and was at a depth of 5.1 kilometers, according to the US Geological Survey.
The quake on Saturday night happened just two days after 1.9 magnitude earthquake struck Thursday at Plumtree, N.C. in Avery County — about 60 miles west-southwest of the Saturday quake.
The Saturday night quake was right along US 421 and was closest to Millers Creek, N.C. — which was 3 miles from the center.
There were no reports of damage.
The quake was also about 4 miles west of Wilkesboro and north of W. Kerr Scott Lake.
