RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Officials have confirmed that a small earthquake rattled central Virginia this past weekend.

News media report that the U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.3-magnitude earthquake occurred in Louisa County about 4 a.m. on Sunday. Officials said the quake was centered about 9 miles south of Louisa and 27 miles northwest of Short Pump.

No injuries were reported in Sunday's quake.

Louisa County is no stranger to earthquakes. In 2011, a 5.3-magnitude quake that was centered in the Mineral Area of the county was felt all the way to New York and Georgia.
