There's been another earthquake reported northwest of Fort Worth.

Tuesday's quake measured 2.7-magnitude and struck one mile east of Azle at 9:39 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

It is the 13th quake registering 2.5-magnitude or greater in the last 30 days in the same general vicinity.

The strongest quake over the past month registered 3.6-magnitude and hit on Sunday.

This week, a research team from SMU is placing seismic monitors around Azle. Scientists are trying to determine if the flurry of tremors is a natural phenomenon or if it is linked to natural gas drilling.
