PIERRE, SD - An earthquake shook South Dakota's capital city Tuesday afternoon.

According to the USGS, the quake's magnitude was 3.4. It happened around 2:45 p.m. and the epicenter was just a couple of miles from Pierre.

People who called KELOLAND News reported hearing a large boom and feeling buildings shake.  So far, authorities haven't received any reports of damage.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it was not strong enough to set off the earthquake sensors on the Oahe Dam, and there doesn't appear to be any damage to the structure.

"As soon as we knew there was an earthquake in the area, we immediately checked our sensors and we went out and had people doing an inspection of the dam," Eric Stasch with the Army Corps of Engineers said.

Check out this USGS link for more details on the earthquake.
