MEDFORD, Okla. (AP) – The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded three more small earthquakes in north-central Oklahoma over the weekend.

No injury or damage has been immediately reported.

The USGS recorded a 3.2 magnitude quake at 5:55 p.m. Saturday 18 miles west-southwest of Tonkawa. The quake had a depth of 2.4 miles.

The area is nearby where two more earthquakes were recorded on Sunday. A 3.0 magnitude quake was recorded shortly before 9 a.m. 7 miles west-northwest of Medford. It had a depth of 3.3 miles.

Another 3.0 magnitude temblor was recorded at 12:30 p.m. Sunday 5 miles east of Medford. It had a depth of 3.1 miles.

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.
