A 2.1-magnitude earthquake hit east central Georgia early Sunday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.
This is the second earthquake reported in Georgia in a week. A 2.2 magnitude earthquake struck an area just north of LaFayette in northwest Georgia on Monday.
The small quake happened at 4:47 a.m. near the city of Washington in Wilkes County.
The region experiences small earthquakes about once every year or two, according to the USGS.
