USGA issues earthquake advisory for central South Carolina

Sources/Usage: Public Domain - This map shows the epicenter of the M 3.5 quake that occurred 3.7 miles (6 km) east of Elgin, South Carolina on June 29, 2022 (star). The quake is part of an ongoing sequence in central South Carolina. The sequence started on December 27, 2021, with an M3.3 earthquake near Lugoff, South Carolina. Between December 27, 2021, and June 29, 2022, there have been about 40 earthquakes in this sequence spanning M1.3 to M3.5.

A swarm of earthquakes is ongoing near the towns of Elgin and Lugoff

A swarm of earthquakes in the Elgin, South Carolina promoted the United States Geological Survey to create scenarios to estimate the chance of larger earthquakes as part of an ongoing swarm in the region.

The swarm began on December 27, 2021, with a magnitude 3.3 earthquake. The largest earthquake to occur so far has been a magnitude 3.6 event on June 29, 2022.

An earthquake “swarm” refers to a prolonged sequence of earthquakes that lacks any clear primary event or mainshock, in contrast to an aftershock sequence where a large mainshock is followed by a decaying sequence of (mostly) smaller earthquakes. Swarms can keep the earthquake rate elevated for a few days to many months. It is generally not possible to predict how long an ongoing swarm will last until it has run its course and it’s impossible to predict the size of the largest earthquake in the sequence.

This area has a history of occasional small, scattered earthquakes, but none of particularly large magnitude. The largest earthquake within 50 miles (80 km) was in 1913 in Union County, when a magnitude 5.5 earthquake struck about 90 km northwest of the recent earthquakes. That quake caused damage to brick and stone buildings, destroyed chimneys, and displaced furniture in homes.

The most damaging earthquake in South Carolina history was the magnitude 7.0 1886 Charleston earthquake, located about 87 miles (140 km) to the southeast of this current swarm.

During an earthquake swarm, the rate of earthquakes is increased, and the probability of larger earthquakes goes up accordingly. This swarm has produced a fairly constant trickle of earthquakes since December 2021, with 0 to 15 earthquakes larger than M2.0 occurring each month. Many smaller earthquakes – some of them still large enough to be felt – have also been recorded in the area. The rate of small earthquakes allows us to estimate the probability of larger earthquakes.

The USGS provides scenarios that are based on the assumption that the rate of smaller earthquakes remains roughly the same over the next month.

Possible Scenarios

The following three scenarios describe possibilities of what could happen over a one-month timeframe (as of August 22, 2022).

Only one of these scenarios will occur within a particular month.

Scenario One (Most likely, about 95% chance): Earthquakes continue but with none larger than magnitude 4 within the next month.

The most likely scenario is that the swarm continues as it has over the past months, confined to the region already affected by the swarm. The rate of earthquakes in the swarm is likely to remain the same, if not decrease slightly, over the next 30 days. Smaller magnitude earthquakes will likely be felt by people close to the epicenters. The swarm could also stop completely during this time.

Scenario Two (Less likely, about 5% chance): A larger earthquake (magnitude 4 - 5).

A less likely scenario would be a somewhat larger earthquake in the magnitude 4 range. Such an earthquake would be felt over a larger area but would not cause significant damage. An earthquake of this size would be followed by aftershocks that would temporarily increase the number of smaller earthquakes per day.

3. Scenario Three (Least likely, less than 1% chance): A much larger earthquake (magnitude 5 or higher)

A much less likely scenario, compared with the previous two scenarios, is that the ongoing swarm could trigger an earthquake significantly larger than the M3.6 that occurred on June 29. While this is a very small probability, such an earthquake could have significant impacts on communities nearby and would be followed by aftershocks that would increase the number of smaller earthquakes per day.

What people can do about earthquakes

Earthquakes can be unsettling, no matter the magnitude. The USGS advises everyone to be aware of the possibility of future earthquakes, especially when in or around vulnerable structures such as unreinforced masonry buildings. This swarm may lead to larger and potentially damaging earthquakes in the future, so remember to: “Drop, Cover, and Hold on” if you feel shaking. When there are more earthquakes, the chance of a large earthquake is greater, which means that the chance of damage is greater. Please refer to preparedness information provided by your local and state emergency management offices.

About our earthquake advisories

No one can predict the exact time or place of any earthquake, including aftershocks or events in swarms. The USGS earthquake forecast gives an understanding of the chances of having more earthquakes within a given time period in the affected area. The USGS calculated this earthquake forecast using a statistical analysis based on past earthquakes.

One uncertain aspect of this swarm is how long the elevated earthquake activity will last. The chance of larger earthquakes will remain elevated as long as the swarm continues. The USGS will update this advisory as swarm activity increases or decreases, or if larger earthquakes occur. They are carefully monitoring activity throughout the region and will continue to provide information to help people stay safe and care for themselves and each other.

The USGS and its partners in the Advanced National Seismic System (ANSS) are monitoring the earthquake sequence in South Carolina. USGS ANSS partners in the region are the Center for Earthquake Research and Information (CERI) at the University of Memphis and the University of South Carolina. A summary of the main features of the sequence is also included on the USGS event pages for the larger earthquakes in the sequence and at the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources:

Updated advisories will be released on the USGS Earthquake Hazard Program website.

Reading Partners South Carolina, a nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that all students have the necessary foundational literacy skills to succeed in school and beyond, is gearing up for the new school year and looking for community volunteers to serve as tutors.

This year marks the organization’s 10-year anniversary in South Carolina where it has served 5,368 students with the help of 11,165 community volunteers. The numbers are impressive, but the real success story has been the student academic gains and social/emotional

maturity that have developed as a result of having a consistent, caring community member sharing just an hour a week to make sure that all students in our community have the best odds for success in school and life.

Last year, 89% of K-2 students met or exceeded their primary end of year growth goal. According to Senior Executive Director Kecia Greenho, “The progress has been remarkable. Thanks to the efforts of thousands of community volunteers, we are closing the opportunity gap for students who typically read six months to two and a half years behind grade level when they enter the program.”

This year, the organization will be serving 675 students in 13 schools throughout Charleston and Berkeley counties and needs just more than 800 volunteers to help. According to Director of Community Engagement Christine Messick, “The minimum commitment is just an hour a week. There is no teaching experience required. We offer orientation, training, on-site support and an easy-to-follow curriculum that gets results. It really is easy and we are especially excited to announce that we will be serving Philip Simmons Elementary School, which will be convenient for Daniel Island residents.”

Philip Simmons Principal Michael Huff added, “The partnership between Philip Simmons Elementary and the Reading Partners program is going to have a tremendous impact on student success. It will allow for even more students to receive individualized literacy instruction that will help them reach grade level proficiency at a faster rate. However, the total impact made will be dependent upon the number of volunteers within our community who are able and willing to be trained. It truly takes a village to support our children and I strongly believe that our Philip Simmons community is ready and willing to step up to do so!”

Reading Partners needs community support now more than ever since it is estimated that students have lost an additional seven months to a year’s worth of learning during the pandemic. Tutoring began in September, but the organization will continue to enroll students as long as there is interest from the community.

To become a tutor and mentor to a student in need, please visit readingpartners.org or email volunteersc@readingpartners.org.
