Two small earthquake tremors were recorded recently near Summerville, according to the U.S. Geological Service.
A tremor rated at 2.0 strength, which is just barely strong enough to feel, was recorded at 5:34 a.m. Friday. (The website records UTC, or Coordinated Universal Time. Add four hours for local time.)
A tremor rated at 1.1 strength was recorded at 8:12 am Sunday. That tremor would not be strong enough to detect without machinery.
Both tremors were about 6 miles south of Summerville, an area that frequently experiences ground disturbances.
A cluster of four tremors was recorded in that area early in 2012. Seismologists did not consider it a predictor of greater activity.
