LENOIR, N.C. – The United State Geological Survey reported a small earthquake just north of Lenoir Monday night.

The small quake, which originated about 10 miles north of the town, was a 2.1 magnitude and was felt at around 9:45 p.m. Officials said the quake was nearly three miles underground.

"1841 Cafe" owner Vickie Setzer said she was washing dishes in her restaurant's kitchen when she felt the earthquake.

"I just looked down and thought, 'Hmm, what happened?'" Stezer said. "I didn't even know there was an earthquake."

Caldwell County's Emergency Manager said he's only received one report of minor damage from an earthquake. He said a homeowner reported cracked plaster.
