Chris Pietsch, TWITTER

A 4.2 magnitude earthquake occurred Saturday morning near Springfield. That's according to the U.S. Geological Survey. It was gaged at about 6 miles deep. One resident in Dexter who contacted KLCC reported seeing her sliding glass door move. Springfield resident, Stephanie Songchild described her experience.

Songchild "Well, I was sitting at the kitchen table, and there was rattling of all the dishes in the cabinets and the floor was shaking. And we live in kind of a yurt thing, and so the whole yurt kind of shook. I've never been in an earthquake before, so it was a little scary."

There were no reports of injuries or serious damage. More information can be found on the US Geological Survey webpage.
