What is the city doing to protect residents?
The city continues to monitor and consult with expert seismologists at Southern Methodist University, who deployed 22 seismographs across Irving in early January 2015. These devices will gather data about the location of the earthquakes, which is the first step to understanding the cause of the tremors.

In addition, the city of Irving and the city of Dallas are creating an area task force that will work collaboratively to find the location and potential cause for these tremors.
