North Texas has 2.7 magnitude earthquake

 

RENO, Texas (AP) — A part of North Texas where at least 19 earthquakes happened in November has recorded another minor quake.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.7 magnitude earthquake happened at 9:44 a.m. CST Tuesday in Parker County. The quake was centered a mile east-southeast of Reno, in an area about 20 miles northwest of Fort Worth.

USGS initially listed Tuesday’s earthquake as 3.4 magnitude but later downgraded the figure.

The Parker County Sheriff’s Office had no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the area’s first confirmed earthquake of December.
