Irving is officially "earthquake country."

Two Small Earthquakes In Irving This Weekend. They were tiny (a 2.3 early Saturday morning, a 2.1 early Sunday morning), so you will be forgiven if you did not feel them. In case you were wondering, I could not be more thrilled that my hometown has been officially dubbed “earthquake country.”

    Don’t think he was driving eastbound on I-35 since there are no eastbound lanes. Please re-read the linked-to item and correct your post.

  • Sparky

    Must have been a very short drive.

    Good thing he wasn’t caught speeding going eastbound on 35.
