🕐 1 min read

DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas area has been shaken by a 3.3 magnitude earthquake.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake happened at 1:14 p.m. Monday, with the epicenter 3 miles south-southwest of Farmers Branch.

Dallas police had no immediate reports of any injuries or damage.

Parts of rural West Texas had a 3.1 magnitude earthquake late Sunday afternoon. USGS reports the 3.1 magnitude quake was centered about 20 miles west-northwest of Fort Stockton.

A 4.0 magnitude earthquake recorded May 7 was centered about 30 miles southwest of Dallas. That quake was the sharpest ever detected in North Texas.

The Texas Railroad Commission the next day ordered the operators of five disposal wells near the area to perform tests and gather seismic data.
