TIMPSON (AP) – Authorities say a 3.7 earthquake has shaken parts of East Texas.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the tremor struck Thursday morning in an area between Garrison and Timpson, about 24 miles northeast of Nacogdoches.
Timpson City Secretary Tanya Windham says it “shook the whole city hall” for about 15 to 20 seconds and she initially thought a nearby train had derailed. A short time later though, she realized it had been an earthquake.
There were no reported injuries.
The Shelby County sheriff and his deputies are out trying to determine whether there was any serious damage.
