Parts of Texas were rocking when a shallow 4.8 magnitude earthquake rocked that region early today. Just as most people were on their way to work or getting ready the 4.8 magnitude earthquake hit only 3 miles underground. A fairly shallow earthquake as earthquakes go but not centered over a heavily populated area. With the epicenter only ~50 miles out of San Antonio and ~100 miles from Austin, many people are reporting feeling it. Although their are no reports of injuries or damage at this point, information is still being gathered from all the rattled communites.
