LANGSTON, Okla. -- Another series of earthquakes rattled central Oklahoma on Sunday morning.

The first was a magnitude 3.0 that was recorded at 9:25 a.m. just south of Langston, Okla. The U.S. Geological Survey says a 4.0 hit in the same area at 9:59 a.m. It was followed five minutes later by a 2.7.

Several people either called KAKE News or posted on social media, saying that they felt the stronger of the three shakers in Wichita.

There were no reports of injuries or damage.


A magnitude 3.8 earthquake rattled parts of central Oklahoma on Saturday morning, and several people in south-central Kansas report feeling the shaker.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the quake hit at 7:42 a.m. and was centered just over 12 miles north of Crescent, or about 55 miles north of Oklahoma City.

It was originally reported as a 4.2, but the USGS reports has since been revised.

The temblor was felt as far north as Wichita, according to numerous posts on social media, and it even shook things up here in the KAKE studios.

There have been no reports of damage or injuries.

The same area of Oklahoma experienced two smaller quakes earlier in the morning, a 2.6 at 1:50 a.m., and a 2.9 at 5:55 a.m.
