AZLE, Texas (AP) — A Texas Railroad Commission member will host a public forum with people who live in an area plagued by minor earthquakes.

Commissioner David Porter says the town hall meeting will be held Jan. 2 in Azle to discuss recent seismic activity. The commission is in charge of regulating oil and gas operations.

A call for more information regarding the forum was not returned Tuesday, as the Texas Railroad Commission is out of the office until Dec. 27.

Authorities are trying to determine what's been causing the earthquakes.

The area about 20 miles northwest of Fort Worth had more than a dozen small earthquakes in November. The U.S. Geological Survey reported two minor quakes this week — both 3.3 magnitude earthquakes centered near Reno.

The Parker County Sheriff's Office has had no reports of anyone hurt or damage.
