AZLE, Texas, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- A 3.3-magnitude earthquake shook the town of Azle, Texas, the seventh quake in the area this month, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.

The earthquake struck at 11:31 a.m. CST Sunday about 2 miles from Azle, which is northwest of Fort Worth.

A 2.1-magnitude quake had rattled the area Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News reported.

More than 20 earthquakes have hit the region since Nov. 1. The strongest was a 3.7-magnitude quake Dec. 9 just north of Mineral Wells, the newspaper said.
