Third Earthquake in Two Weeks Hits East Texas

Google Maps

East Texas felt another small jolt this afternoon when a 2.7-magnitude earthquake hit in East Texas in the same area as the previous two that occurred over the last two weeks.

The earthquake, which was likely an aftershock from the 4.3-magnitude quake that hit Thursday (May 17), was centered near Timpson, about 20 miles northeast of Nacogdoches. The town has been the epicenter of all three earthquakes that have been felt in East Texas over the past 10 days.

A 3.7-magnitude quake was recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey on May 10.

There is no damage or injuries being reported from today’s event.

The question now: Will it happen again, and if so, when? Strings of earthquakes have happened in East Texas before, most notably in 1964, when eight earthquakes were felt in the area in the matter of a week.
