South Texas Earthquake

South Texas was hit by a 4.6-magnitude earthquake that was centered 50 miles south-southeast of the city of San Antonio, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Scientists revealed such strong earthquakes rarely hit the area with a 4.3-magnitude earthquake in 1993 being the strongest one before today’s quake.

People in Wilson County, Atascosa County and Bexar County have felt the earthquake while employees working in a federal building in downtown San Antonio were evacuated shortly after the quake. Later, they were allowed to return to their offices.

The surprising earthquake shook South Texas around 7:20 in the morning but few people in San Antonio have felt the quake, according to reports by local media.
