KOTA radio reports that 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.
