OKLAHOMA CITY — Three earthquakes have been recorded near Langston in Logan County in north central Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey says all three of the temblors were recorded Monday about nine miles south of Langston.

The U.S.G.S. says the strongest, a 3.2 magnitude quake, was recorded shortly after 8 a.m. at a depth of about four miles.

The next one, a magnitude 3.0 earthquake, occurred about an hour later at a depth of about two miles. The third — also magnitude 3.0 — was recorded at about 10:30 a.m. at a depth of about three miles.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported. Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and damage is not likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.
