Quake gives northeast Parker County a small jolt

The latest earthquake was recorded at 2:10 p.m. and registered a 2.1 magnitude just east of Reno in northeast Parker County, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

Another day, another earthquake.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported a 2.1-magnitude earthquake at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday just east of Reno in northeast Parker County.

No major damage was reported.

Three quakes were recorded late last week in Grayson County. Parker County has reported more than 20 since Nov. 5.

On Dec. 8, a quake north of Azle had a magnitude of 3.6. On Dec. 9, a 3.7-magnitude quake hit northeast of Mineral Wells. And on Dec. 10, a 2.7-magnitude tremor was felt east of Azle.

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