A small earthquake rattled parts of the New River Valley and West Virginia Monday evening.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake's epicenter was in West Virginia (37.269 N, 80.776 W), about 5 miles South-Southeast from Narrows, and 5 miles South-Southwest from Pearisburg.

The earthquake registered a magnitude of 2.3 on the richter scale, which means many people probably did not feel anything.
