(KYTX via WFAA) - Multiple reports of an earthquake in Irving and Northwest Dallas came in Sunday morning shortly after 10 o'clock.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the tremor at 10:11 a.m. and initially measured it as a magnitude 3.1, but later revised the intensity to 3.2.

"We felt it in the middle of 9:30 mass at Christ the King Church in Dallas," Joyce Aldaba said.

Its epicenter was just southwest of the intersection of Highway 114 and Rochelle Boulevard in Northwest Dallas.

The strongest recent quake recorded in North Texas since 2010 was measured at 3.6 magnitude on January 7. There have been four earthquakes from 3.3 to 3.5 magnitude in the same area since 2012, and more than 60 quakes measured since 2010.

But Sunday's tremor clearly raised concerns for a lot of people.

Llaloha Lennick said she felt it in Northwest Dallas near Love Field.

"Story and Walnut Hill, lasted a few seconds, very strong!" Taylor Amanda Dorris wrote.

Niki McClure said she was at David McDavid Honda in Irving. "Biggest one I've felt yet," she wrote. "Feels like a big truck backed into the building."

Tonya Parker Wyatt at MacArthur Boulevard and Shady Grove Road had a similar assessment: "Felt like a car went through our apartment building, and the windows rattled," she wrote.

Other commenters said they could feel the earth move in East Dallas, Euless, Arlington, Carrollton, Farmers Branch and Fort Worth. Several Facebook posters worried about possible damage to their home foundation, but there were no immediate reports of structural damage or injuries.

Last month, an SMU study said drilling activities were the likely cause of a swarm of recent earthquakes in the Azle area. The cause of the quakes in the Irving-Dallas area remains under investigation.
