Texas has had its second minor earthquake this week. The U.S. Geological Survey website shows that the 3.4 magnitude quake happened at 12:47 p.m. Friday and was centered 15 miles north of Snyder in West Texas. The area is 68 miles southeast of Lubbock.

The Scurry County sheriff's office said there were no immediate reports of injury or damage. On Wednesday the USGS reported a 2.7 magnitude earthquake about 29 miles southwest of Dallas.

It was the second quake in the Snyder area in less than a month. On Nov. 24, a 3.0 magnitude quake was centered 17 miles north-northeast of Snyder.
