3.3 MAGNITUDE EARTHQUAKE HITS NORTH TEXAS

(IRVING) A magnitude-3.3 earthquake has shaken North Texas.  The U.S.

Geological Survey said the quake occurred about 9:15 p.m. Saturday and

was centered about 2 miles beneath east Irving, and 6 miles northwest of

Dallas. There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.  The USGS

said it was at least the fourth earthquake recorded in Irving in the last

two months.  Small earthquakes have become more common recently in Texas

and Oklahoma. Last month, the Texas Railroad Commission amended rules for

disposal well operators amid concerns that high-pressure injections can

trigger earthquakes.  Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0

are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and that damage is not

likely as a result of quakes below magnitude 4.0.
