4.1 magnitude earthquake rattles East Texas

TIMPSON, TX - An earthquake of moderate magnitude was detected in Shelby County early Friday Jan. 25, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Seismometers detected a 4.1 magnitude temblor around 1:01 a.m., about 2 miles west of Timpson.

The USGS reported the tremor's depth was measured about 4 kilometers below the surface of the Earth.

The Shelby County and Rusk County Sheriff's offices confirm no injuries or damage have been reported.

Viewers from Mount Enterprise, Center, and Garrison to Shreveport reported feeling the shaking.

Friday's tremor follows a weaker 2.8 magnitude earthquake reported in the same area in December. Seven quakes have been detected in the region since May 2012.
