Four Texas Earthquakes Happen Within 12 Hours, Including Three Near Snyder
Three earthquakes have been reported in Texas in less than 12 hours, according to the U.S. Geological Survey Website.
Just before 5 p.m. on Monday, September 30th 2019, a 4.0 magnitude earthquake was recorded approximately 12.5 miles north of Snyder, Texas. Then, a 3.8 magnitude quake was recorded near the same site around 2 a.m. Another earthquake was registered just over an hour later near Alvarado, Texas (along Interstate 35W south of Fort Worth). That earthquake measured 3.2 magnitude. And the fourth earthquake was recorded less than 12 hours later (around 6:20 a.m.) within a mile of the earlier 4.0-magnitude quake near Snyder. The fourth one registered at a 2.5 magnitude.
