Which Texas City is Getting ‘Earthquake’ Weary?

Should you ever have the desire to feel an earthquake, no need to vacation in California, when we have the new earthquake capital of the world right here in East Texas!

Yes, you probably weren’t aware of the fact that 7 earthquakes (or aftershocks as the seismologists call them) have hammered the Timpson area over the last 8 months .

The latest shaker was an almost negligible 2.8 which occurred Tuesday morning at 6:31 a.m.  Most recently, a 4.1 rattler struck last Friday (January 25).  The cyclictic events began in May of last year when the region experienced a magnitude 3.9 tremblor.

On May 17, 2012, the “Rick-ter Scale clocked in at 4.8 around 3 a.m., causing damage to an apartment building in Nacogdoches.

As I have said before, there is one positive to earthquakes, and only one.  You never know when and where they will strike, so the “worry” factor, as compared to tornadoes and hurricanes, is really non-existent.
