LANGSTON, Okla. – Homes across the metro were shaking throughout the overnight hours as several earthquakes were recorded around town.

Authorities with the U.S. Geological Survey say a 3.0 magnitude earthquake was recorded near the town of Langston at 2:08 a.m. on Wednesday.

Just a few hours later, a smaller earthquake was felt in Edmond.

Experts say a 2.7 was recorded around 5:30 a.m. with the epicenter near Edmond.

Less than 30 minutes later, the largest earthquake of the morning was felt near Spencer.

That’s where the U.S. Geological Survey says a  4.3 magnitude quake was recorded around 5:53 a.m.

A short time later, the organization downgraded the earthquake to a 4.1 magnitude.

This comes just two days after a 4.2 earthquake was felt across the metro area.
