CALDWELL, Kan. (AP) -- The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.8 earthquake has hit south-central Kansas.

The USGS said the earthquake was reported shortly after 9 a.m. Monday about 11 miles northwest of Caldwell, which is about 60 miles south of Wichita, near the Oklahoma border. The USGS initially reported the quake to be magnitude 4.2, but later revised that to a magnitude 3.8.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The earthquake had a depth of 3.1 miles.

"Nothing but the building started shaking", said Caldwell's David Martis. "I first thought somebody fell out front here or something. Everybody in town seemed to have felt the same thing."

In Anthony library assistant Norma Walker says she felt it too.

"I actually felt something had smashed into the building," she said. "It kind of made a big noise and it shook a little."

The USGS website says it registered at 4.2 says the earthquake was felt as far north as El Dorado, which is northeast of Wichita.
