Small Earthquake In Dallas

Dallas – A small earthquake has been recorded in the Dallas area.

A spokesman for the U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake occurred about 11:45 p.m. Saturday. No injuries were reported.

Geophysicist Paul Caruso told The Dallas Morning News that the late-night quake was a magnitude 2.6 (http://dallasne.ws/pwqGvn).

The epicenter was six miles west-southwest of Dallas, and it was felt as far away as Greenville, according to reports to the agency's Web site.

Caruso said experts "don't expect significant damage or injuries until the magnitude is in the 5.5 range."
