FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) Officials are conducting daily inspections on water reservoir dams in North Texas for fear that a string of earthquakes may have caused cracks or loosened foundations.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Saturday that at least 19 tremors have struck the region in November. The strongest was a pair of 3.6-magnitude quakes, which geologists is still too faint to for many people to notice.
Among the dams being inspected is one at Eagle Mountain Lake near Fort Worth. It's also expected that the dam at Possum Kingdom Lake will be inspected after two quakes were registered in that area.
The latest earthquake happened Friday near Reno in Parker County. The 3.1-magnitude quake was the third-strongest this month.
