At least three earthquakes have rattled Texas since Saturday.

The latest to be reported by the U.S. Geological Survey is a 2.2 magnitude quake 11 miles southwest of Corsicana in Navarro County. It struck early Monday at 12:59 a.m.

The largest of the tremors was a magnitude 3.6 earthquake in Johnson County on Sunday afternoon.

The quake struck 7 miles northeast of Cleburne at 12:47 p.m. in the same area a 2.1 magnitude quake was felt almost precisely 24 hours earlier.

"It felt like a wave, a boom and a wave," Alvarado resident Lisa Hansen told News 8. "I'm still shaking."

Breg Buttry in Burleson described it as a "loud rumbling and popping noise."

And Norma Jones near Keene said Sunday's quake shook her home and items in her cupboard, lasting between 3 and 5 seconds.

The USGS had initially reported the Johnson County quake as a 3.5 magnitude, but later bumped it up to a 3.6 after further analysis of the data.

The agency said there was another moderate quake in Texas on Sunday --  a 3.4 magnitude tremor just before 4 a.m. Sunday near Tilden, about 100 miles northwest of Corpus Christi.
