OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The U.S. Geological Survey says more than a dozen earthquakes have rattled parts of central Oklahoma, ranging in intensity from an estimated 2.6 to 4.4 magnitude.

The earthquakes were recorded Sunday and late Saturday. No injuries or damage was reported.

The 4.4 magnitude temblor was recorded shortly after 9 a.m. about 12 miles northwest of Crescent. The USGS says several other smaller earthquakes were recorded in the same general area earlier Sunday.

The 2.6 magnitude earthquake was recorded about two miles east of Choctaw shortly after midnight. Two other earthquakes were recorded in the same area Saturday night.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans and that damage is not likely with quakes below magnitude 4.0. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
