Residents are waking up to an earthquake in St. Louis County, Mo.

There are no reports of damage from the early morning temblor. It struck about 6:25 a.m. in Fenton, which is in the central part of the state.

Last month, a magnitude 5.2 earthquake shook much of the Midwest. Its epicenter was near West Salem, Ill., near the Indiana border. More than two dozen aftershocks followed that quake, some registering 4.0 magnitude and higher.
