Another earthquake shook parts of East Texas Thursday morning.
This quake measured 4 point 3 on the richter scale.
There are reports of some chimneys collapsing.
And roof damage a fellowship hall just a few miles from town.
This is the second earthquake in a week to hit East Texas.
And Timpson's Emergency Management Department says, it's putting together a plan to deal with future quakes.
Larry Burns tells KETK, "We don't have one and we didn't have one as of the last one you know. We're not prone to earthquakes or haven't been in the past."
There were no serious injuries in Timpson.
But, a Shelby County woman was treated for minor scratches, after falling from bed.
City officials tell KETK, they'll continue to access the damage in the coming weeks.
