More Earthquakes Detected in North Texas

Wednesday was another another shaky day in North Texas.

The U.S. Geological Survey said a 2.7-magnitude earthquake was detected at 11:05 a.m. Wednesday about 26 miles northwest of Fort Worth near Springtown.

According to the Modified Mercalli Intensity Scale, the vibration would have felt like passing heavy trucks. Stopped cars would rock, hanging objects to swing, windows, dishes and doors to rattle, glasses to clink and wooden walls and frames creak.

It was the second consecutive day that a tremor was detected in northern Parker County. On Tuesday, a 2.6-magnitude earthquake hit at 9:32 p.m. a mile east-southeast of Reno, about 20 miles northwest of Fort Worth.
