FALLS CITY, Texas (AP) - No injuries have been reported after a pre-dawn earthquake shook parts of South Texas, about 45 miles southeast of San Antonio.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the 3.7 magnitude quake happened
at 4:51 a.m. Monday.

The quake was detected about 6 miles southwest of the Karnes County town of Falls City, in an area near the line with Wilson County.
The U.S. Geological survey reports the epicenter was at a depth of about 3.1 miles.

Law enforcement authorities say some residents of Wilson counties reported feeling the quake.

The agency says a magnitude 4.0 earthquake typically can be felt as far as 60 miles from where it happened.
