Morning quake was nothing earth-shaking

A small earthquake centered on Corey Road between Foothill Road and McLoughlin Drive was detected by the U.S. Geological Survey's Pacific Northwest Seismograph Network at 11:08 a.m. Tuesday.

The quake had a reported magnitude of 2.8, classifying it as a micro quake. Earthquakes of this magnitude usually aren't felt except by a very few people under especially favorable circumstances, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

No one reported the quake to local emergency responders and no damage or injuries were seen, officials said.

A slightly smaller quake, with a reported magnitude of 2.1, was recorded at 3:53 p.m. Friday near Wards Creek Road about three miles outside Rogue River.
