The USGS reports the 3.3 magnitude quake was recorded at 1:57 a.m. Thursday five miles southwest of Boley in Okfuskee County — about 55 miles east of Oklahoma City.

No injuries or damage have been reported.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and that damage doesn't usually occur with earthquakes below magnitude 4.0.
