RENO — Another minor earthquake has happened in North Texas.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the 2.9 magnitude quake was recorded at 3:43 a.m. CST Saturday and was centered 2 miles southwest of Reno.

The epicenter was close to an area where three earthquakes were recorded Tuesday around Azle, about 20 miles northwest of Fort Worth.

The Parker County Sheriff's Office had no immediate reports of damage or injuries from the latest quake.

The quake brings to more than a dozen the number of earthquakes reported in the area this month. The largest was 3.6 magnitude earthquake recorded Tuesday evening.
