STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Two small earthquakes have been recorded in the Stillwater area.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.1-magnitude earthquake was recorded at 5:47 a.m. Saturday about one mile southeast of Perry and 51 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

The second earthquake was recorded at 3:54 p.m. and was a magnitude 3.2. The U.S.G.S. says it occurred less than three miles northwest of Stillwater and 50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

There were no reports of injuries or damage from either of the earthquakes.

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