EDMOND, Okla. (AP) – Two small earthquakes have been recorded in central Oklahoma near Edmond and near Langston.

No injuries or damage are reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.3 magnitude quake was recorded at 3:57 a.m. Tuesday about 5 miles southeast of the Oklahoma City suburb of Edmond and a 3.1 magnitude quake was recorded at 2:04 a.m. about 3 miles south of Langston – about 30 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans and that damage is not likely in temblors below magnitude 4.0.
