A Whole Lotta Shaking Going On

Oklahoma City, OK – 3 earthquakes recorded in central Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The U.S. Geological Survey reports recording three earthquakes in central Oklahoma in a span of less than seven hours.

A 3.7 magnitude quake was recorded near Prague in Lincoln County about 9:35 p.m. Sunday. That was followed by a 2.7 magnitude quake in the same area about 3:20 a.m. Monday and a 2.8 magnitude quake in the area just after 4:15 Monday morning.

No injuries or damage are reported. The survey says people as far away as Tulsa and Claremore reported feeling the 3.7 quake.

Quakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3 are generally the smallest felt by people.
