CHOCTAW, Okla. (AP) – The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded several small earthquakes during the weekend in Oklahoma.

No injury or damage is reported.

The USGS recorded a 3.7 magnitude quake at 2:54 p.m. Sunday near Choctaw – about 15 miles east of Oklahoma City. The same area is the site of a larger – 3.9 magnitude quake that was recorded at 5:18 a.m. Saturday in addition to 2.3 and 2.7 magnitude quakes recorded in the area during the past two days.

A 3.0 magnitude quake was recorded at 12:50 a.m. Sunday near Boley and a 2.8 magnitude temblor was recorded Saturday near Pawnee.

Geologists say quakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and damage isn’t likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.
