Dallas: The US Geological Survey says a minor earthquake measuring a preliminary 3.4 magnitude has rattled an area west of Dallas, Texas.
The survey`s earthquake center in Golden, Colorado, says the quake lasting several seconds began at 11:05 pm CDT yesterday and was centered about 3.2 kilometers north of Irving in Texas.

Geophysicist Randy Baldwin at the Colorado center told The Associated Press that the quake was just strong enough to likely have been felt for about 32 kilometers around the epicenter.

He says the quake`s online reporting system received no reports of any damages or injuries but there were some 1,200 responses from people who felt the quake.

Baldwin says smaller aftershocks are a possibility in that area in coming hours or days.
