2 small earthquakes rumble through Oklahoma

TONKAWA, Okla. (AP) – Two small earthquakes rumbled through Oklahoma this weekend.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude-3.1 quake struck about seven miles southeast of Tonkawa on Saturday afternoon. The second quake was a magnitude-2.8 temblor recorded Saturday evening about two miles east of Chickasha.

Authorities in Tonkawa and Chickasha say there weren’t any reports of damage or injuries related to the quakes.

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