FAIRVIEW, Okla. — A pair of earthquakes has shaken parts of northern and northwestern Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the first magnitude 3.2 earthquake was recorded at 12:48 a.m. Sunday about 20 miles (33 kilometers) northwest of Fairview, about 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The temblor occurred at a depth of about 4 miles (7 kilometers).

The second temblor, a 3.3 magnitude quake, was recorded at 2:43 p.m. about 11 miles (17 kilometers) southwest of Perry in Logan County. It was recorded at a depth of 3 miles (5.4 kilometers).

No injuries or damage was immediately reported following the earthquakes.

Thousands of earthquakes have been recorded in Oklahoma in recent years. Many of the quakes have been linked to the underground injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas production operations.
