The second earthquake in a week shook the area, centered in Timpson but felt as far north as Shreveport and as far south as Lufkin according to the National Geological Society. The 4.3 magnitude earthquake started this morning at 3:12 a.m.
Unlike the last quake in the area this one caused more damage and was almost a full point higher on the scale.
