Shaking San Antonio

Yeah, I know you've probably heard about it already, but we had ourselves a little shaker here in South Texas, which is definitely rare enough to qualify as strange in San Antonio.
The 4.8 magnitude quake happened early Thursday morning about 50 miles southeast of San Antonio in the small town of Pawnee. That's between Karnes City and Beeville.

In Atascosa County some say they were actually woken up by the tremors that lasted about 5 to 6 minutes.

In the quiet town of Campbellton, Texas people were talking all day Thursday about the earthquake that rattled South Texas.

I felt it this morning. Did you?

I didn't. I think I was on the road when it happened.

It was very mild. I was sitting at my desk and not moving when I felt the tremors. I can see how someone driving down the road -- or even walking -- might not have noticed.
