Earthquakes in Dallas: Is Texas becoming California?
Cali has In-N-Out, Trader Joe's ... is this a trend?
DALLAS First we get In & Out Burger, then Trader Joes, bike trails, and now we are getting earthquakes! Saturday evening, September 29, at about five minutes after 11 p.m., I thought I heard a weird roar and felt like someone had just shut a garage door with extreme force — leaving the house a bit shaky. Nope, wasn’t the booze. Turns out that was an earthquake in Texas, a 3.4-magnitude earthquake recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey. The coordinates put it more or less at the intersection of N. MacArthur Boulevard and W. Rochelle Road in Las Colinas. The U.S.G.S. puts it near Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (yikes!), but it was apparently felt all over town, from Irving to Southlake to Lake Highlands and even all the way up to The Colony. Some people are reporting damage.
Talk about a bad night for Cattle Barons: rain, mud and an earthquake!
Here is where the USGA pinpointed the quake:
- 3km (2mi) N of Irving, Texas
- 10km (6mi) SSW of Farmers Branch, Texas
- 11km (7mi) NNE of Grand Prairie, Texas
- 11km (7mi) E of Euless, Texas
- 295km (183mi) S of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Keep state income tax and real estate bubbles in Cali … along with the earthquakes!
