Why is Texas shaking?

The number of earthquakes in Texas continues to rise, with 28 earthquakes recorded in 2016. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and the 84th Legislature authorized $4.47 million for TexNet, an array of seismometers across Texas that help better locate and identify earthquakes and also measure the levels of ground shaking from these events.
