SPRINGTOWN, Texas (AP) - North Texas has had at least four minor earthquakes this week in the same general area about 20 miles northwest of Fort Worth.

USGS says a 2.7 magnitude quake happened Wednesday morning about 3 miles south-southwest of Springtown.

A 2.6 magnitude earthquake was recorded Tuesday night in the nearby Reno area. USGS says that was followed minutes later by a 2.3 quake centered a few miles away in the Newark area.
