DOUGLAS - A small earthquake rumbled in southeast Converse County but caused no damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake had a magnitude of 3.4 and was centered in a sparsely populated area about 10 miles northeast of Douglas. It occurred shortly before 6:15 Monday morning.

Nancy Meyer of the Converse County Sheriff's Office said she was eating breakfast at her home on the east side of Douglas when she heard a rumble and saw mirrors in the home move slightly.

She called the sheriff's office where the dispatcher speculated it might be a train.
