ALICE, Texas - Residents near Alice are reporting a possible earthquake around 9:45 this evening.

Calls have been coming into the Action 10 Newsroom from various places around Jim Wells County.

There are no reports of damage or injuries. Jim Wells County dispatch says it seems like a minor earthquake.

They are working to rule out the possibility of an explosion. Specifically, they are checking on a factory located in Bishop.

Law enforcement tells us they are recieving reports from all over the county, and they say all indications point to an small-scale earthquake.

ALICE - The U.S. Geological Survey has confirmed a magnitude 4.0 earthquake 10 miles east of Alice, near Rancho Banquete.

The last time an earthquake hit South Texas was back in 1997, that quake also struck near Alice.

Geophysicist Richard Buckmaster, said the USGS is unsure of fault's name, or if it has one, because they believe it has yet to be identified.

Wondering if this could be due to some man made influence.

No I'm not talking about HAARP either...

Perhaps some sort of mining or construction project in the area set if off?

It's happened before.

Okay, but who's Alice? Just joking.


Yeah that's kinda weird. I certainly don't think of Texas when I hear "earthquake".

Ok this is just plain weird. The day before yesterday at sunset, I saw a very strange cloud at sunset ( I live in Houston, Texas). It was glowing iridescently. Anyway, I told my husband there is going to be an earthquake in Texas within a couple of days. He thought I was nuts. Guess my hunch was right...I have photos will have to download tonight and post in the morning.

Nuff said about what? People have a right to comment about earthquakes on here if they please, especially if one happens in Corpus Christi. If you don't like the topic move on to something else.

Relax friend. I live about 100 miles south and it has us freaked out.


I was referring to biblical prophecy. This pretty much seals the deal for me. It is the beginning of the end of times.

Clouds often turn orange/yellow at sunset, it's all about light wavelengths.

Short wavelengths passing through our atmosphere give us blueish hues.

Long wavelengths passing through our atmosphere give is reddish hues.

That's why the sky is blue during the day.

It's also why the sky (and clouds) turn orange/yellow/pink at sunset, the short wavelengths get scattered leaving only the longer wavelengths to pass through.

I saw some photos and videos awhile ago about earthquake lights. When I saw the cloud, it reminded me of that and I just had a feeling that there was going to be one.

It actually says diverse places in the bible, which I guess could mean about the same thing.. therefore making my point invalid.


Oh well, stay safe down there.

Yeah I know how clouds turn colors at sunset and I know how the sky is blue too
anyway, the cloud caught my attention because it was iridescent, the photo doesn't do it justice...
