OKLAHOMA CITY — A pair of earthquakes has rattled parts of Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the first earthquake was recorded at 5:17 a.m. Saturday a little more than a mile south-southeast of Langston. The 2.8 magnitude temblor was recorded at a depth of about four miles.

At about 10:40 a.m., a second 3.4 magnitude earthquake was recorded about eight miles west-southwest of Pawnee. The temblor occurred at a depth of about three miles.

Authorities say no injuries or damage has been reported following the temblors.

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.
