Yet another quake rattles North Texas

A minor earthquake was reported Tuesday morning near Azle.

The quakes keep coming to North Texas.

For the third consecutive day, a minor earthquake was reported in North Texas, a 2.7-magnitude tremor felt at 9:39 a.m. Tuesday a mile east of Azle.

It is one of more than 20 earthquakes measured in the area in the past few weeks.

No major damage or injuries have been reported.

On Monday, a 3.7-magnitude quake hit north-northeast of Mineral Wells, according to the U.S. Geological Survey’s website. On Sunday, a quake north of Azle measured 3.6 magnitude.

The 3.7-magnitude tremor is the strongest in North Texas so far. Geophysicists have noted that it generally takes a 5.0-magnitude quake to cause structural damage.
