DALLAS — For the third time in two nights, North Texas has been shaken by an earthquake.

The epicenter of Sunday’s 2.1 magnitude tremor was near the intersection of Fort Worth Avenue and Interstate 30 in West Dallas, striking at 10:41 p.m.

The Sunday quake was centered 3.7 miles east of a 3.1 magnitude quake in Dallas on Saturday night. That one came just four minutes after a 3.4 magnitude event in Irving.

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.

Molotov thrown into office of Senator Wendy Davis via CBS11

Here is a transcript of what @CBSDFW had posted on twitter today about 6:15pm

(18:10) At 4:02 p.m., a suspect threw a Molotov Cocktail at Sen. Wendy Davis’s Fort Worth office. No one was hurt, more to come.

(18:13) Sen. Davis’s spokesman says a staffer heard a loud thud outside her office, followed by a fire alarm. Davis was not at office.

(18:14) More: Staffer opened Davis’s door, found a bottle aflame on the floor surrounded by waist-high flames. This blocked entry to third floor.

(18:15) Con’t: One Davis staffer hopped over the flames to escape while another grabbed a fire extinguisher and put out fire. Again, no injuries.
