Man, W.Va. (AP) -- No damage has been reported from a 2.9-magnitude earthquake that occurred over the weekend in southern West Virginia.

The U.S. Geological survey says the temblor's epicenter was located about 7 miles from man in Logan County. It struck at 7:27 a.m. Saturday.

Man fire department chief Bill Weese says the area is mostly unpopulated.

Weese says emergency officials didn't receive any reports about the earthquake.

He says they first learned about it from the Logan Banner.

    I heard something about mine blasting or something in that area. Does anyone know if that is true? I have a huge fear of earthquakes and natural disasters such as this and with all the high magnitude quakes recently this really concerns me. I am afraid with all the mine shafts in WV the entire state would collapse in on itself if a large one were to hit the state.

    I wonder if it was an underground mine collapse.
