IRVING, Texas — Hey, you feel that?! No, you’re not crazy. Another earthquake shook up things in North Texas Tuesday afternoon.

It’s the fifth quake in four days!

The U.S. Geological Survey reports this one as a 2.7 magnitude about two miles northeast of Irving — near the Old Texas Stadium.

That area’s been shaking and rattling since late Saturday when a 3.3 quake caught everyone by surprise. Of course Twitter fired up with everyone asking — you feel that?!

The quakes have been pretty shallow, not strong enough to cause any damage.

It’s unclear what’s causing all the rattling. But, it could be worse. In neighboring Tarrant County, quakes have become pretty common and fracking has been the epicenter of blame for that activity.
