If you live in Snyder, you probably got a little rattled on Sunday morning.

That's because an earthquake shook things up a bit.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, it was a 4.4 magnitude quake.

The quake originated 11 miles northeast of Snyder at 7:27 a.m.  

Many of you took to our Facebook page saying you felt it in Midland, Odessa, Big Spring and Andrews.

There were two smaller aftershocks on Sunday afternoon.

The Scurry County Sheriff's Office tells NewsWest 9, no damage was reported.     

This isn't unusual for the Snyder area as small quakes do hit from time to time.

The last few earthquakes were around 3.0 in magnitude.
