US Geological Survey records small earthquake northwest of Edmond


EDMOND, Oklahoma — The U.S. Geological Survey reports a small earthquake just northwest of Edmond.

The USGS says a preliminary magnitude 3.2 quake was recorded at 8:05 a.m. Monday about nine miles northwest of Edmond — about 20 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.

Authorities say no injuries or damage are reported.

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