I have never been in an earthquake before but tonight I didn't know what was happening to me. Alone in my apartment I felt a roll or wave of force come through. I was extremely frightened, especially since I had no idea what was going on.

I never thought I would experience in my home in Texas.

We are at the Hyatt House in Irving and we felt two strong shakes just a few minutes apart. If that is what a 3.4 feels like hope I feel nothing stronger.

I thought there weren't any fault lines in near Texas?

If you live in the Barnett Shale around Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, you may have noticed the ground has become a bit shakier in the last few years. And a new study by a Univeristy of Texas seismologist says that the wells used to dispose of fracking waste water are responsible.
