DUE WEST, S.C. -

An earthquake hit a small Upstate town early Friday morning.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports the 1.9 magnitude quake hit just after 5 a.m. The epicenter was located about 4 miles northwest of Due West.

Although less frequent than other parts of the U.S., South Carolina does experience small earthquakes about once each year or two. The largest one on record was a 5.1 magnitude quake in 1916.
