    A minor earthquake was reported early Thursday morning in the Richmond area, but it's too early to tell if it is the result of the continued fallout from Boobquake 2010.

    The U.S. Geological Survey's website showed that a 2.3-magnitude earthquake struck at 12:12 a.m. The epicenter was 14 miles north-northwest from Short Pump and 14 miles west-northwest from Ashland in Hanover County.

    No injuries or damages were reported.

    Two other earthquakes were reported Thursday in West Virginia.  Click here to view a map of all the quakes reported in the U.S.

    Boobquake, as you may remember, was held across the country on Monday in an effort to prove wrong the theory that cleavage produces earthquakes.
