Small earthquake in the Black Hills

    CUSTER, S.D. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Service says a small early morning earthquake rumbled in the Black Hills. 
    Sensors detected the quake in Custer State Park near the Black Hills Playhouse and Center Lake at about 2:45 a.m. Thursday. 
     The location is about 8 miles south of Mount Rushmore, or 20 miles south-southwest of Rapid City. 
     It registered 3.5 on the Richter scale at a depth of 4 kilometers. 
     The USGS says it is unlikely that many felt the quake unless they were very close to the epicenter. There are no reports of damage.
