The earthquake was recorded at a magnitude of 3.3 on the Richter Scale at 7:11 a.m. CT, according to the USGS.
The epicenter was three miles below the surface at 32.933N 97.594W, less than a mile southwest of Reno, three miles northwest of Azle, 13 miles west-northwest of Saginaw and 13 miles north-northwest of White Settlemen.
Portions of Reno are located in Tarrant and Parker counties.
The earthquake was located in areas encompassing 12 postal zip code areas, the USGS said, including Fort Worth.
No damage was reported or expected.
Small earthquakes are common in the area, but most are too light to be felt.
One of Texas' worth earthquakes was felt in the 19th Century, but did not do as much damage as the weather.
"On Jan. 8, 1891, violent shaking of buildings and a few toppled chimneys were reported from Rusk, Texas," according to USGS historical records. "These effects were evaluated as intensity VII, although other towns in eastern Texas along a northeast- southwest line through Rusk experienced tornadoes and sudden, violent wind storms producing effects similar to, and in some cases more damaging than, those in Rusk."
