AZLE (CBSDFW.COM) - Residents in Azle told CBS 11 News that they are concerned about the rising number of earthquakes rocking the area.

Another earthquake hit just before 11 p.m. Saturday night.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed that it was a magnitude 2.8 earthquake.

“There’s not a whole lot of shaking, it’s not like living in California where the house moves. It’s just like somebody picks up the house and drops in one quick movement,” said Cheri Howard of Parker County.

More than 20 earthquakes have hit North Texas since the start of November.

The strongest earthquake to strike in the last two months was a magnitude 3.7, hitting northeast of Mineral Wells six days ago.
