IRVING, Texas (AP) - Another minor earthquake has been detected in North Texas.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports a 3.3 magnitude quake happened at 5:36 p.m. CDT Thursday. The quake was centered in the Las Colinas section of northeastern Irving near Texas 114.

Police in Irving had no immediate reports of damage or anyone hurt in the earthquake.

Seismologists have said that dozens of small quakes rattling North Texas in recent months were concentrated along a narrow two-mile subsurface fault. Experts from Southern Methodist University weeks ago placed more than 20 monitors around the quake sites and then determined the fault existed.

Officials are still trying to figure out what’s been causing the earthquakes.
