Rare 4.0 earthquake hits South Texas on Saturday night
A light to moderate quake jolted the South Texas area last night. The quake was some concern to the fact the area rarely sees this activity.
The quake was 28 miles West of Corpus Christi, TX and was a magnitude 4.0 on Sunday, April 25, 2010 at 02:10:41 UTC, which in local Texas time was around 11:10pm Saturday night.
Scientists are unsure at the moment what caused the quake in South Texas, however the earthquake density maps are very telling to the situation. The area does not experience these types of quakes.
The depth of this quake was around 5.0km, which suggests it was either geological or induced by oil production, which does happen. Never-the-less this is an interesting area to have a quake due to the fact the area has a large crack running north to south in Texas, discovered several years ago, origin being unknown.
The quake comes after a 4.3 Magnitude shaker in Mexico earlier in the day.
