Whitesburg, KY --A 4.3 magnitude earthquake centered in Kentucky affected at least three other states, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The USGS website says the epicenter was about 10 miles west of Whitesburg. The organization received reports of tremors in Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Ohio and Georgia. 

Two News 2 viewers called and others reported feeling the quake on Facebook.

National Weather Service spokesman Jeff Carico said employees at the office in Jackson, which is about 60 miles northwest of Whitesburg, felt the ground shake for about 15 seconds. He said the office has gotten a multitude of calls, but so far no one has reported any serious damage.
