TIMPSON (May 17, 2012)--A moderate earthquake early Thursday morning rattled an area in east Texas near the Louisiana border.
National Earthquake Information Center geophysicist Amy Vaughan said the earthquake happened at 3:12 a.m. Thursday and had a magnitude of 4.3.
It was centered near Timpson.
Shelby County Sheriff's dispatcher Jacob Allen said the only injury reported involved an elderly woman who fell out of her bed and cut her arm.
Allen said the quake caused broken windows and fallen dishes, but said no major damage has been reported.
Vaughan says the quake was felt within 75 miles of its epicenter.
She said the same area was the site of a 3.9 magnitude quake on May 10.
