The Labor Day weekend is getting off to a shaky start in Louisa County.
The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a magnitude 2.3 earthquake struck in the county at 12:27 AM Friday. The epicenter was 6 miles south-southwest of Louisa.
No injuries or damage were immediately reported.
It was exactly two years ago on Friday, August 23, that a 5.8-magnitude earthquake rattled Louisa County and beyond; damaging homes, businesses, schools, and the Washington Monument, among other things.
In all, FEMA approved nearly $40 million to help homeowners recover in Central Virginia. The agency also gave $19 million to help rebuild Louisa County High School.
