It registered 4.1 magnitude on the Richter scale, according to the USGS.
Oconee Emergency Services told FOX Carolina News the Duke Nuclear Station on Lake Keowee is not reporting any problems.
Doug Bryson of Spartanburg County Emergency Management said it is not uncommon for South Carolina to have earthquakes that register below 2.0 on the Richter scale, but an earthquake over a 4.0 is rare.
Officials said it was the thirteenth earthquake in South Carolina over the past year. The majority of the earthquakes center around the coastal region of the Carolinas, officials said.
Derrec Becker of S.C. Emergency Management Division said everything has returned to normal in Edgefield just after Midnight.
