Lawn chairs were overturned in the most damaging Irving earthquake to date

An earthquake registering 3.5 magnitude hit Irving at about 3 p.m. today (Jan. 6).

This is the largest earthquake to hit Irving and the largest in the area since a 3.6 magnitude earthquake hit Azle in 2013.

In the Dallas Voice office, the earthquake was felt by people on one end of the office, but not by those in the center of the building.

Executive Editor Arnold Wayne Jones said, “It sounded like a bull came barreling through the office.”

Advertising Director Chad Mantooth said he felt the earth move under his feet. He felt the sky come tumbling down, while social media manager Stephen Mobley mostly just screamed like a little girl.

Others on staff said, “What the frack? The gays caused it.”
