    The United States Geological Survey says a 2.4 magnitude earthquake rattled Irving Sunday evening.

    The quake was recorded at 9:09 p.m. with the epicenter located two miles NNW of Irving.

    The tremblor is the latest in a string of unusual cluster of quakes to strike the Irving area since Oct. 28, 2014.

    No damage reports have been received.

    Most of the quakes in the cluster have ranged between a 1.8 and 2.5 magnitude, some tremors, however, have been stronger. The largest tremblors recorded in the cluster were 3.5 and 3.6 magnitude quakes in January 2015. The intensity of both of those quakes rated an MMI V, indicating they had the strength to be felt by everyone, including those sleeping, and that windows and dishes may have been broken.

    No injuries or serious damage have been reported in connection with any of the earthquakes in the Irving cluster.

    The last earthquake reported in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex was on Monday evening, Nov. 2, 2015. It was rated a 2.2 magnitude, according to the USGS.
