SHREVEPORT- A moderate 4.3 earthquake with an epicenter in east Texas was felt in Shreveport today.

The earthquake was roughly seventy miles west of the Louisiana state line and struck in the predawn morning hours.

There are no reports of injuries, but News 2 did obtain photos of homes slightly damaged.

Officials say the quake began only three miles below the earth's surface, and about ninety-minutes from Shreveport.
