Weak earthquake reported in central Alabama; no damage reported
CENTER POINT, Ala. (AP) ' The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.0-magnitude earthquake has been reported in central Alabama.
The quake struck just before 6 p.m. Tuesday and was centered about 10 miles northeast of Birmingham.
A police dispatcher tells The Birmingham News (http://bit.ly/npGg8 ) that they received a few calls from residents who felt the tremor but had not received any reports of structural damage.
Last month, a 5.8-magnitude earthquake in Virginia shook people from Georgia to Canada. It was the strongest quake to strike the East Coast since World War II.
