Jones, OK – Magnitude 3.2 earthquake recorded near Jones
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded another earthquake in central Oklahoma.
A 3.2 magnitude earthquake was recorded at 7:42 a.m. Thursday about two miles southwest of Jones about 10 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. No injuries are reported.
There have now been 47 earthquakes and aftershocks recorded in Oklahoma this year with 40 of those measuring at least a 2.0 magnitude. Quakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3 are generally the smallest felt by people.
Geological survey officials say the earthquakes are part of a phenomenon called a swarm and do not appear to present a serious threat.
