ALVARADO (AP) — Texas has recorded its fourth minor earthquake in as many days.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 2.6 magnitude quake happened Monday night at 11:03 in North Texas.

Experts say the quake was centered about one mile south of Alvarado. The area is about 10 miles east-northeast of Cleburne and 25 miles south of Fort Worth.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

Minor earthquakes were recorded Saturday and Sunday in the same general area of North Texas.

USGS says another quake happened early Sunday in South Texas near Tilden, about 100 miles northwest of Corpus Christi.
