Minor Earthquake Rattles Ovilla, South Of Dallas, Tuesday Night

The U.S. Geological Service is still reporting earthquakes in spite on the government shutdown, and it logged one at about 8:30 Tuesday night in Ovilla, south of Dallas.

USGS reported the minor, 2.4 quake was centered off Ovilla Road, just east of Interstate 35.

Ovilla has about 3,400 residents and straddles the Dallas-Ellis county line.  Three people in neighboring Cedar Hill reported on the USGS website that they felt the teeny quake.
