All the quakes shook an area about 7.5 miles north of Grapevine, according to USGS data on its website.

The first quake was measured as a 2.8 magnitude quake that struck shortly after 3 p.m.

A second quake struck a few minutes later at around 3:12 p.m. with a 2.5 magnitude.

About 10 minutes later, a slightly larger 3.1 magnitude quake was followed by a 2.6 magnitude quake.
