The U.S. Geological Survey says a small earthquake occurred overnight in western Alabama near the Mississippi state line.
An earthquake with a magnitude of 2.1 happened about 5 miles northwest of Livingston in Sumter County. A government reporting website says it occurred about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.
The earthquake was so weak most people probably didn’t feel it, and no damage is being reported.
