WILMINGTON -- Another earthquake has hit Virginia. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the 2.4 magnitude quake struck the town of Mineral around 1 a.m. No injuries have been reported.
Last August, a 5.8 magnitude quake hit that same area. Aftershocks were felt across the east coast, including right here in North Carolina.
Officials said that August's earthquake was the strongest to hit the east coast since World War II.
No injuries were reported, but hundreds of buildings suffered heavy damage in the fall.
