A magnitude 3.7 earthquake approximately 11 miles north-northeast of Mineral Wells was recorded by the US Geological Survey Monday. The earthquake was recorded at 3:23 a.m. A USGS map showed the earthquake was centered near the intersection of Highway 281 and Highway 52, north of Salesville. Barbara Upham, who lives between Salesville and the epicenter, said she didn't feel it. This followed a 3.6 tremor at a depth between 2.4 and 3.1 miles about 10 miles north of Mineral Wells early Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, and there was a 2.8 magnitude earthquake reported about 14 miles south-southwest of Jacksboro as well. USGS officials said there were no reports of damage or injuries in any of the earthquakes. Palo Pinto County Emergency Management Coordinator Buddy Harwell said his office did not receive any reports of damage.
