AUSTIN, Texas — A magnitude 5.8 earthquake has been recorded on a fault line on Texas’s southern Gulf Coast.
A Texas Department of Transportation official told The Associated Press that the quake was felt in parts of the Gulf Coast region from Fort Worth to Houston.
It is the strongest earthquake ever recorded on Texas faults, the official said.
It was recorded as a magnitude 3.7 on Wednesday and is located near a fault called a tectonic plate.
Tolls are down in the state, but the agency said there are still some roadways closed.
Tulsa officials say they have received reports of landslides in some areas.
