IRVING — For the second night in a row, North Texas has been shaken by an earthquake.

The U.S. Geological Survey measured Sunday night's tremor as a magnitude 2.1, smaller than either of the two Saturday quakes.

The epicenter of Sunday's 2.1 magnitude tremor was in an industrial area along Carl Road, just north of Highway 183 and south of the University of Texas campus in Irving.

It's about a mile-and-a-half east of the Irving neighborhood where Saturday's 3.4 magnitude was pinpointed.

Within minutes, the WFAA Facebook page received dozens of comments, many from people who did not feel anything... but others who did.

"Felt it out here in Irving again between Story and Beltline," wrote Samantha Newton on WFAA's Facebook page. "A lot weaker than last night's ... feels like I am back in Cali, LOL!"

"Felt it in Las Colinas," added Lillian Winfoeld. "It was a light shake; nothing like last night."

There were no initial reports of damage or injuries.

Sunday's quake was initially reported by the USGS as being centered in West Dallas; that location was later revised to Irving.
