CRESCENT, Okla. – Several earthquakes shook central Oklahoma on Tuesday.

The U.S. Geological Survey says two earthquakes hit central Oklahoma in the overnight hours, but no damage or injuries have been reported.

The USGS says a 4.2 magnitude quake struck late Monday in Logan County. The quake was centered 3 miles north-northeast of Crescent, and the USGS says it was felt as far north as Wichita, Kansas.

What was believed to be a 4.1 magnitude earthquake hit the same area shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday. The USGS says that temblor had an epicenter 4 miles north of Crescent, or 37 miles north of Oklahoma City.

However, that earthquake was later downgraded to a 3.6, according to the USGS.

Around 3:12 p.m. on Tuesday, the USGS also recorded another 3.6 magnitude quake near Fairview.

A short time later, a 2.5 magnitude quake registered near Stillwater.

Then, around 4:05 p.m., the USGS recorded a 3.5 magnitude earthquake near Fairview.

On Monday, the USGS released a survey that found Oklahoma has a 1 in 8 chance of damaging quakes in 2016, surpassing California as the state with the highest probability.
