CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department released 911 calls from Charlotte residents following an earthquake Wednesday in South Carolina.
The United States Geological Survey says a 2.2 magnitude earthquake was reported at 4:07am and was centered four miles from Irmo, South Carolina. This is about 10 miles from Columbia.
CMPD says several residents along Providence Road called 911 to report some type of explosion around 6pm Wednesday evening. Police believe these calls were associated with an aftershock from the original earthquake in South Carolina.
No damage was reported from the earthquake or the aftershocks.
