Yet another earthquake has rattled North Texas, this one at about 10 p.m. Friday, 6 miles northeast of Whitesboro in Grayson County, according to the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colo.

The latest quake, which had a magnitude of 2.6, joins a new cluster of tiny temblors recorded this week in Grayson County.

Another 2.6 quake was felt at day earlier, about 11:43 p.m. Thursday, 3 miles south-southwest of Pottsboro, the agency reported.

The two towns are about 22 miles apart.

On Wednesday, a 2.5-magnitude quake hit, also near Pottsboro.

That quake was reported at 11:42 a.m. about 3 miles southwest of Pottosboro, according to the agency.

Pottsboro is about 100 miles northeast of Fort Worth. The quake was about 7 miles northwest of Sherman and about 10 miles west-southwest of Denison.

There were no immediate reports of major damage from the Grayson County quakes.

Last week’s earthquake streaks began Dec. 8 when a quake north of Azle registered at 3.6 magnitude.

Since Nov. 1, North Texas has had more than 20 minor earthquakes, with no injuries or major damage reported.
