CHEROKEE, Oklahoma — Two earthquakes have shaken parts of northern Oklahoma.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.1 magnitude temblor was recorded at about 4 a.m. Tuesday eight miles northeast of Cherokee in Alfalfa County. Cherokee is about 15 miles south of the Kansas border and 130 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The earthquake occurred at a depth of four miles.
The second was recorded at 1:16 p.m. about three miles west-northwest of Medford in Grant County, also about 15 miles south of the Kansas border. The magnitude 3.4 temblor was recorded at a depth of about two miles.
No damage or injuries was immediately reported. Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and damage is not likely from earthquakes below magnitude 4.0.
