3.0 earthquake recorded in east-central Oklahoma

LAMAR, Okla. (AP) — A small earthquake has been reported in east-central Oklahoma.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 3.0-magnitude quake struck about 12:35 a.m. Saturday 7 miles east-southeast of Lamar in Hughes County. Lamar is about 74 miles south of Tulsa.

A sheriff's office dispatcher said she wasn't aware of any injuries or damage being reported. Emergency Management Director John Roberts said the only reports he had received from the area were from the media.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans.
