The U.S Geological Survey says a 3.4 magnitude earthquake struck just south of McArthur Wednesday afternoon.

No injuries are reported.  The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says it is associated with a fault line in Athens and not fracking. A 3.0 magnitute earthquake struck Monroe County in early April.
