The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a magnitude-2.3 earthquake struck in the county at 7:01 a.m. Wednesday. The epicenter was 6 miles south-southwest of Louisa.

In August of 2011, the county was struck by a magnitude-5.8 earthquake. The temblor was centered in Mineral and caused millions of dollars worth of damage throughout the greater Mid-Atlantic region.
