I read an article that blamed the implosion at the Stadium.

The article said they installed equipment to measure all the quakes.

The article also added 3.5 was the biggest so far.

Here it is...

I'm watching the USGS to see what pops up.

Strange huh!

My wife is from that area and she says in the entire time she lived there (born and raised) she never once felt any EQ's.
I bet people are tripping out right now about these and a lot of beer is being consumed in driveways...lol

Texan here. It's my understanding there were several reports of loud 'booms' in the DFW area last Sunday, some of which were compared in volume to the explosion at West several years ago. I wonder if this could be associated with the quakes in any way? Perhaps they indicate upcoming quakes?

Just felt a pretty big one, relatively, to the recent ones! Holy crap!

I'll update once it hits USGS but that one was a bit scary...

It was a 3.6 in nearly the same spot as the 3.5 earlier today. It certainly felt much stronger and lasted at least 4 seconds.

3.6 is not a big earthquake. Us Californians wouldn't blink an eye at that.

In November of 2014 there were 5 earthquakes in 4 days, at the same place.
This article refers to the probability that they were caused by fracking.




The city of Irving, Texas has experienced five earthquakes in four days, leading some critics to blame increased seismic activity on nearby fracking operations. The first earthquake, Saturday night, was a magnitude 3.3 quake that was felt by hundreds of North Texans. A 2.5-magnitude quake hit on Sunday, followed by two more on Monday, magnitudes 2.2 and 2.3. And a fifth 2.7-magnitude earthquake was reported Tuesday evening just east of the University of Dallas campus

The last 3.6 I felt I cried like a little baby and ran to the bedroom, lol and I've lived in California all my life. That was a few days after the 6.0 Napa quake though.

Earthquakes can be scary, even at that size. Especially for people that aren't used to experiencing them at all.

they carry differently in the middle of the U.S compared to the rest of the country. the geology is sort of like living in the resonant chamber of an acoustic guitar. A little 2.0 one can pop up on the USGS "did you feel it?" shake map several states away from where it happened. the shake map can have several counties that didn't feel it and then a county on the other side of the state can say they felt it skipping everything in between. in fact i have seen little 2.0 okie quakes felt in colorado or across the mississippi.

Posted this in the other thread, but it's up to 6 quakes here now.

This is from FOX 4 facebook page, no article yet. www.facebook.com...

Earthquake 5 - 9:54 p.m. ~ 1.7M

Earthquake 6 - 10:05 p.m. ~ 2.4M

I'm sure. Californians don't worry until their floor opens up and swallows them.

The difference is: we don't get earthquakes. Thanks for chiming in though, California.

There was another one earlier this hour, making it 7 quakes in one day here. Still from the Fox 4 facebook, no article.

We had a 3.8 here in OKC yesterday, first one I've felt since I lived in L.A. back in the 1990's... I grew up in North Dallas, to think of Addison having earthquakes just amazes me, all the clubs rattling and shaking. lol

funny thing about the OKC earthquake locus it isn't even near the largest most known fault in oklahoma. that's the Meers fault over by Lawton.

but there is a lot of deep geological strangeness in this region.

They just reported another 3.1 minutes ago.

Not sure if this has been posted yet, but a good DFW news source is

WFAA.com

That is the local ABC news channel.

Also check out their facebook page. They always post new info there first.

Im just now seeing local news stations posting about the 3.1 that happened 30 minutes ago.

First came from WFAA facebook. www.facebook.com...


A 3.1 magnitude quake at 12:59 AM 2 miles Northeast of Irving


Are these considered aftershocks of the 3.6 that happened hours ago? It seemed that most after were high 1's to 2's, and now a 3.1?
