For the third time in a week, the second in as many days, North Texas is shaken by a minor earthquake.

Monday's quake began to shake North Texans out of bed at 8:02 a.m. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake registered as a 2.3 and the epicenter was located near 10 N. Robinson Street in Cleburne.

A small earthquake rocked several North Texas cities Sunday night, including Cleburne and Parker.

The quake measured 2.6 and hit just before 6 p.m.

"We just felt the house shake and we heard the window rattle a little, so we thought somebody had ran into the house," said Dolores Solis of Cleburne. "So we ran outside and we went to the neighbors and she felt it also."

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Sunday's quake hit 18 miles from Cleburne near the town of Covington, but could also be felt in the town of Rio Vista.

This latest quake comes just six days after a 2.8 quake rocked portions of the same area.

There are no reports of any injuries or damage, but the USGS wants to hear from those who felt the quake via their "Did You Feel It" feature on their Web site.
