Pair of earthquakes rattle parts of Oklahoma
June 18, 2017
BLANCHARD, Okla. (AP) — Two earthquakes have shaken parts of north and south central Oklahoma.
The U.S. Geological Survey recorded a magnitude 3.2 quake Saturday morning about 9 miles (15 kilometers) south of Blanchard. Earlier Saturday, the survey says a magnitude 2.6 temblor rattled about 15 miles (25 kilometers) east of Cherokee.
No damage or injuries were immediately reported.
Geologists say damage isn't likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0. Earthquakes of magnitudes 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans.
