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.
