LUTHER, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says several earthquakes have shaken central Oklahoma.
The USGS reports seven earthquakes since a 3.0 quake was recorded 1:45 a.m. Tuesday. The largest were a 4.3 magnitude quake at 1:56 a.m. and a 4.2 magnitude quake at 5:15 a.m.
The most recent quake was a 3.5 magnitude tremor at 12:07 p.m. The other earthquakes were measured at magnitudes 3.3 and 2.8. All the earthquakes were centered in an area 25-50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City - five near the town of Luther and one near Boley.
State and county officials say there have been no reports of injury or damage.
Geologists say quakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans.
