A slight earthquake was registered in East Texas near the Louisiana border, four days after a sharper shock struck the area.


The U.S. Geological Survey reports a 2.7 magnitude quake was registered about 1:30 p.m. Sunday just over a miles south of the town of Timpson, 152 miles east-southeast of Dallas.

A dispatcher for the Shelby County Sheriff's Office in nearby Center said no damage or injuries were reported.
   

A moderate, 4.3-magnitude earthquake had rattled the area early Thursday. A Shelby County sheriff's dispatcher that morning reported fallen dishes and broken windows from the quake, but the only injury was an elderly woman who fell out of bed and cut her arm.
