CLEBURNE, Texas (AP) - Residents of a town in north-central
Texas have reported hearing a clap of thunder that turned out to be
an earthquake rather than stormy weather.
The U.S. Geological Survey says the tremor at 8:02 a.m. Monday registered 2.3-magnitude and was centered beneath the western section of the town of Cleburne.
City spokesman Charlie Hodges says that after the sound of a thunder clap, residents reported hearing a low rumble for about two seconds.
Hodges said no damage nor injuries were reported in the
community south of Fort Worth.
The tremor comes a day after a 2.6-magnitude tremor was reported in Parker, about 10 miles away.
And it was Cleburne's second tremor in a week. A 2.8-magnitude quake shook the town last Tuesday.
