The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded three small earthquakes in central Oklahoma. The U.S.G.S. reports a 3.1 magnitude earthquake shortly after noon Sunday that came after a 2.5 magnitude quake recorded about 5:15 a.m.
Authorities told reporters that there were no reports of injury or damage in the quakes about 15 miles east of Oklahoma City. A 2.9 magnitude quake was then recorded at 4:40 p.m. between Langston and Guthrie, about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City. The quakes come after a 2.7 and a 2.9 magnitude quakes were recorded in the Choctaw area on Saturday.
Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and that damage isn't likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.
