      Nearly a year after quake, Virginia still feeling aftershocks

      MINERAL, Va. (AP) - Virginia continues to experience aftershocks from last summer's earthquake.

      The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.1-magnitude aftershock occurred at 11:21 p.m. Sunday 8 miles south of Louisa and 8 miles south-southwest of Mineral.
