As John Lennon would say, "Nobody Told Me There Would Be Days Like These, Strange Days Indeed, Most Peculiar Mama."

Another strange oddity happened on Thursday, (May 30) and I'm not referring to former President Donald Trump being convicted of a felony in the Stormy Daniels hush money trial in New York City.

MORE: Earthquakes Are Real in South Dakota - But They're Rare

It's not uncommon to get earthquakes in South Dakota, there have been nearly 100 documented cases in the state since the first recorded one back in 1872.  Now, as of Thursday, (May 30), we can add another to the list.

According to Dakota News Now, an earthquake rocked parts of central South Dakota during the mid-afternoon on Thursday.  The United States Geological Survey reports a 3.7-magnitude quake struck about 24 miles northwest of Pierre right around 2:40 PM.

Dakota News Now reports that the Hughes County Sheriff's Office received several calls from residents in the area claiming to have heard and felt a deep rumble.

The largest earthquake ever recorded in South Dakota happened on June 2, 1911, just south of Huron. That earthquake had a magnitude of 4.5 on the Richter Scale.

As of this time, there have been no reports of any damage or injuries resulting from Thursday afternoon's earthquake near Pierre.
