OKLAHOMA CITY — Two earthquakes have rattled parts of northern Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.7 temblor was recorded at 9:36 a.m. Saturday about three miles north-northeast of Cherokee in Alfalfa County. Geologists say it occurred at a depth of about three miles.

Earlier Saturday, a magnitude 3.6 earthquake was recorded at 2:23 a.m. about nine miles west-southwest of Enid in Garfield County. The USGS says it occurred at a depth of about three miles.

No damage or injuries were reported following the quakes.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans and that damage is not likely from quakes of below magnitude 4.0.
