    Paul Caruso, a geophysicist at the National Earthquake Information Center, said by telephone that a magnitude 2.2 earthquake occurred around 6:22 a.m. Thursday about 11 miles northwest of Ashland in Hanover County. He says there have been a few reports of people feeling the earthquake nearby in Beaverdam.

    Caruso says quakes of this size are rarely felt and aren’t expected to cause damage.
