FAIRVIEW, Okla. — A 3.5 magnitude earthquake has rattled parts of northwestern Oklahoma.

No damage or injuries have been reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the earthquake was recorded at 10:02 a.m. Wednesday near Fairview, about 110 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The earthquake was recorded at a depth of about three miles.

Geologists say a magnitude 3 temblor was recorded earlier Wednesday near Mooreland, about 50 miles northwest of Fairview. That quake occurred at 8:46 a.m. and was recorded at a depth of about three miles.

An increase in magnitude 3.0 or greater earthquakes in Oklahoma has been linked to underground disposal of wastewater from oil and natural gas production. State regulators have ordered some wells to close.
