3.7 earthquake hits East Texas

Posted on May 10, 2012


The U.S. Geological Society reports the earthquake hit around 10:15 a.m. at a depth of 3.1 miles below the Earth’s surface.

According to Jason Hansford, senior meteorologist at the National Weather Center in Shreveport, no damage has been reported in the area.

Hansford said he did not know how an earthquake could have hit the area, as there are no significant fault lines.

“It could be fracking issues,” he said. “It’s just a theory, but we don’t have any significant fault lines.”
