EUTAW, Ala. (AP) - A small earthquake has hit a west Alabama county for the second time in a month.

The U.S. Geological survey reports a magnitude 3.4 earthquake occurred in Greene County on Wednesday afternoon. It was centered about 11 miles northwest of Eutaw and 5 miles underground.

The quake happened just four weeks after a magnitude 3.8 earthquake occurred about 10 miles northwest of Eutaw. That quake was about 3 miles beneath the surface of the Earth.

No damage was reported in either incident. But Greene County resident Jonathan Rice tells WBRC-TV (https://bit.ly/1zzBeIe ) he felt the latest earthquake during his lunch break from work.
