A magnitude 3.3 earthquake struck the city of Charleston, South Carolina, USA

A magnitude 3.3 earthquake occurred in a densely populated area of South Carolina. The epicenter of the earthquake was located directly in an area of residential development.

Charleston and its surroundings were devastated in 1886 by a very strong earthquake (magnitude 7.3). Aftershocks, some of which were strong enough to cause damage on their own, continued for years. Prehistoric earthquakes like the 1886 earthquake have occurred in coastal South Carolina at intervals ranging from several centuries to several thousand years.
