STILLWATER, Oklahoma — The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded a 4.1 magnitude earthquake near Stillwater.

The USGS says the earthquake was recorded at 2:10 p.m. Sunday five miles southwest of Stillwater, about 45 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

The Payne County Sheriff's Office and Stillwater Police Department say there are no reports of damage or injury.

The quake comes following a 3.1 magnitude earthquake recorded in the same general area at 6:55 a.m. Sunday.

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