Pair of earthquakes rattle parts of northern Oklahoma previously shaken by swarm of temblors


OKLAHOMA CITY — A pair of earthquakes has rattled parts of northern Oklahoma previously shaken by a swarm of earthquakes.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the temblors were recorded Friday in Logan County, the first at 5:38 a.m. about 14 miles northeast of Crescent, located about 35 miles north of Oklahoma City. The magnitude 2.6 quake occurred at a depth of less than two miles.

Geologists say the second quake was recorded about eight miles north of Langston at about 8:30 a.m. The 3.1 magnitude earthquake occurred at a depth of about two miles.

No damage or injuries are reported.

A series of earthquakes rattled the same area Monday and Tuesday, including two of magnitude 4.5 that are the strongest quakes reported in the state so far this year.
