OKLAHOMA CITY -- Five minor earthquakes occurred within hours of each other in central Oklahoma, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The first happened late Friday morning and was followed by five others, the last one being early Friday evening. All were centered in the Guthrie-Edmond area, which is just north of Oklahoma City.

The first, a magnitude 2.7, was recorded around 11:45 a.m. and was centered about three miles southwest of Guthrie.

The second, a 2.9, occurred about four miles north of Edmond at 2:45 p.m. It was followed by a 2.8 about an hour later.

Another 2.7 was recorded just after 5 p.m. and was centered four and a half miles south-southwest of Guthrie. It was followed by a magnitude 3.1 at around 6:20 p.m.

One person who posted on our Facebook page said his mother lives in Edmond and one of the quakes was big enough to damage her fireplace. Another said Friday evening that his home had been shaking since morning.
