Texas has another minor earthquake, nobody hurt

TIMPSON, Texas (AP) - East Texas has had a minor earthquake.

The Shelby County Sheriff's Office had no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

Timpson is a town of about 1,200 located 165 miles southeast of Dallas.

An earthquake earlier this week in the Dallas area had a 3.0 magnitude. Experts say Tuesday night's quake was centered about five miles north-northwest of Irving.
