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.
