PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) — Parts of southeastern Missouri, western Tennessee and western Kentucky got a little bit of a shake.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 2.7 earthquake rumbled through the area around 10:20 p.m. CDT Tuesday. WPSD-TV in Paducah reported that the epicenter registered southeast of Portageville, Mo.

That area is in the New Madrid seismic zone, which the Geological Survey considers the most active zone in North America east of the Rocky Mountains.

The station said there were no damage reports from the quake.
