— -- A 4.8-magnitude earthquake hit a part of Kansas this afternoon near the city of Conway Springs, according to the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center.

A spokesman for the Sumner County Emergency Management in Kansas told ABC News that he received no reports of major damage.

People in Conway Springs and Derby, near Wichita, noted that they felt shaking for 10 to 20 seconds, but added that the shaking was “not intense.”

A fire truck is headed to a location eight miles south of Conway Springs, which is believed to be the earthquake's epicenter, to check on one location that might have received damage.
