WHOA! 10 Earthquakes Just Ripped Through Texas in One Day

The Earth was rocking and rolling this week in Northern Texas. Ten (!!) earthquakes, with three of them greater than 3.0 in magnitude, shook the area while doing major damage to homes.

“Shook my whole house!” said CBS 11 News viewer Aprille Maganda from her home in the Las Colinas area of Irving.

“The last one really shook,” said CBS 11 News anchor and reporter Ken Molestina, who felt the the earth moving in the White Rock Lake area of Dallas. Other people reported feeling the temblors in the uptown area of Dallas and even as far away as Bedford and Mesquite.

The latest quake, reported just after 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, measured in at a 2.6 magnitude, and was centered near the convergence of Highway 114, Loop 12 and the Airport Freeway, near the old Texas Stadium site in Irving.


The subsequent quakes were so serious that geophysicists are calling them separate Earthquakes, instead of aftershocks.
