FLAGSTAFF, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - It wasn't strong but an earthquake shook the area near Flagstaff on Sunday afternoon.

The 3.1-magnitude earthquake hit around 2:30 p.m. about 7.5 miles southeast of the city, according to United States Geological Survey.

The depth was about 3 miles.

So far, there aren't any reports or damage or injuries.

An earthquake that is between 3.0 and 3.9 is considered minor with the tremor rarely causing damage. However, it is often felt and sometimes items can been seen shaking during the earthquake.

Maybe there still IS a little magma plume left under there! The last eruption was what, 600 AD? Stranger things have happened.
