2 minor earthquakes hit Dallas-Fort Worth area

DALLAS (AP) - Two minor earthquakes have shaken the Dallas-Fort Worth area, but no significant damage has immediately been reported.

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… :?

    Huh - I didn’t know you had the controller this week.

    Guess that’ll teach you to clean more carefully!

    Most of that area is conservatives - they picked up, straightened up, and went about their business before FEMA even knew they’d had a quake…

    Stop doing that. You know it is supose to be pushed only if Obama wins. And then in the states that went blue.

    Damn Fred, you took the idea right from my head. If I ask nicely, can I get you to place the next epicenter directly under the University of California in Berkeley? I’d kind of like to leave the Golden Gate Bridge alone. . .
