The U.S. Geological Survey says an earthquake with a 2.5 magnitude was reported at 11:25 p.m. Thursday, centered in the Grand Prairie area.

The agency says a slightly stronger quake, at 3.0 magnitude, occurred at 12:01 a.m. Friday, centered in Irving about 10 miles west of Dallas.

USGS geophysicist Randy Baldwin says aftershocks could last several days.

Law enforcement agencies across northern Texas say they received some 911 calls from people who had felt the quakes.

An April 7 earthquake in southern Texas had a 3.7 magnitude.

Damn!! Sorry, I was cleaning the control panel on the VRWC (Vast Right Wing Conspiracy) *Earthquake Machine* and I accidentally pushed the *activate* button. I guess the *fail safe* still isn’t working correctly, we gotta get that looked at… :?

I’ll try to be more careful in the future, I thought we had it set for *Cali*, turns out it was *Arli*, damn, I HATE typos… :?
