3.1 Magnitude Earthquake Recorded North Of Edmond
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.1 magnitude earthquake has been recorded north of Edmond.
The USGS says the earthquake was reported at 5:35 p.m. Monday about seven miles northeast of Edmond. There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.
The earthquake was recorded in the wake of an active seismic weekend in central Oklahoma.
The USGS recorded a 3.7 magnitude quake Sunday near Choctaw, about 15 miles east of Oklahoma City. The same area is the site of a 3.9 magnitude quake that was recorded on Saturday in addition to 2.3 and 2.7 magnitude quakes that were previously recorded in the area.
Geologists say quakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and damage isn't likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.
