2.7-Magnitude Earthquake Strikes Midlothian

Jan 8, 2015

Another earthquake has shaken North Texas, this time in Midlothian. A 2.7-magnitude quake was recorded at 2:12 p.m. Thursday, the U.S. Geological Survey says.

It’s the 13th earthquake to hit North Texas in three days. The others have either been in or near Irving.

Twelve earthquakes shook North Texas Tuesday and Wednesday -- and seismologists are intensifying their focus on all of the rumbling and rattling near the old Texas Stadium site.

Southern Methodist University is installing 22 more seismographs in the Irving area this week.

SMU experts, who have been studying North Texas earthquakes in recent years, stress it’s going to take time to learn more about the quakes.
