Lancaster More than 1,000 people called the Lancaster County 911 center after a minor earthquake shook the area. A dispatcher with the Lebanon County Emergency Management Agency said dispatchers there also got a few calls from the Cornwall and South Lebanon Twp. areas. A Cumberland County dispatcher said the center got at least one call from someone who felt it in the Mechanicsburg area. The U.S. Geological Survey says the 3.3-magnitude quake hit early Saturday morning, a few moments after midnight. It was centered just outside Lancaster. Many who called local newspapers or 911 thought there had been an explosion nearby, but there were no reports of injuries or severe damage.
