And yet another quake shakes ground near Azle

The 3.0-magnitude earthquake was recorded Tuesday about three miles northeast of Azle and two miles northwest of Pelican Bay, according to the U.S. Geological Service.

The latest earthquake recorded in North Texas happened about noon Tuesday, 3 miles northeast of Azle and 2 miles northwest of Pelican Bay, the U.S. Geological Service reported.

It was a 3.0 magnitude, the agency said.

There were no reports of any injuries or property damage a day later.

The quake was the latest of about three dozen in northeast Parker County since November.

A busload of residents from the Azle area packed a Texas Railroad Commission meeting Jan. 21 and urged commissioners to halt the use of injection wells in the area.

The commission has agreed to hire a seismologist to help determine whether injection wells are causing the quakes.
