FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- A slight earth tremor rattled part of North Texas.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports the 2.6-magnitude earthquake struck at 8:10 p.m. Wednesday. It was centered 2 miles east of Burleson, or 13 miles south of Fort Worth.

Fort Worth police Capt. Kevin Rodricks tells the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that 911 operators were flooded with calls from residents of southwest Fort Worth who reported "a loud bang, followed by tremors."

No damage was reported.
