COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- An aftershock from the earthquake that shook a large part of South Carolina and north Georgia Friday night rattled a smaller area Sunday afternoon.

The U.S. Geological Survey's website reported a 3.2 magnitude earthquake at 3:23 p.m. Sunday in Edgefield County, just a few miles from the 4.1 magnitude quake on Friday.

Sunday's earthquake was only felt about 35 miles from its center, while Friday's quake was reported more than 150 miles away - as far away as Atlanta, with many people in Gainesville and elsewhere in northerast Georgia reporting that they felt it. (See link below.)

Inspectors checked bridges, nuclear plants and dams in the area, but no major damage was reported after Friday's quake.

Sunday's aftershock was significantly smaller.
