      SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (AP) -- Some windows rattled and the ground shook a bit, but there was no damage reported when a small earthquake rumbled near Summerville.


      The quake was reported Thursday afternoon and the National Earthquake Information Center confirmed it was a magnitude 2.5 quake. That's the smallest magnitude that can generally be felt by humans.


      The U.S. Geological Survey reported a second small quake near Ladson on Friday morning. It was a 2.2 in magnitude quake that usually cannot be felt.


      It's not unusual for small quakes to be felt in the Summerville area. The area is near the fault that caused a magnitude 7.3 earthquake that killed 110 people in 1886.
