LANGSTON, Oklahoma — The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded four small earthquakes in Oklahoma.

No damage or injuries have been reported.

The USGS says two of the quakes registered a preliminary magnitude of 3.3. The first was recorded at 1:26 a.m. Sunday about nine miles northwest of Langston and the second was at 4:41 p.m. about two miles east of Perry.

A 3.2 magnitude quake was recorded at 4:32 a.m. seven miles southwest of Pawnee and 2.5 quake was recorded at 5:11 a.m. about 13 miles south of Medford.

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 as a result of quakes below magnitude 4.0.
