    DALLAS, Texas (AP) -- Several minor earthquakes gave some Texas and Oklahoma residents an early Halloween scare, but no damage or injuries were reported.

    A 2.5-magnitude quake at 11:25 p.m. Thursday near Grand Prairie was followed by a series of other small earthquakes in the Dallas suburb, then a 3.0-magnitude quake at 12:01 a.m. Friday in nearby Irving, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

    Irving police received 911 calls from about 25 people saying they had felt the quakes, but there were no reports of injuries or damage, Officer David Tull said Friday morning.

    USGS geophysicist Randy Baldwin says aftershocks could last several days.

    On Thursday, a 3.1 magnitude quake was reported about 11:30 a.m. near McCloud, Okla., some 180 miles north of the Dallas area, according to the USGS. There were no reports of damage or injury there, either.

    The Oklahoma quake is considered a separate event from those in Texas, said USGS geophysicist Jessica Sigala.

    Wonder if this had anything to do with that Bean Recipe thread that CATCH17 started.
