And yet another quake shakes ground near Azle

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.
