CHEROKEE, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded seven earthquakes in Oklahoma, including two above magnitude 4.0.

No injuries or damage are reported as a result of the Sunday temblors.

A 4.3 magnitude quake struck at 3:14 a.m. about 13 miles northeast of Cherokee and a magnitude 4.1 quake was recorded at 3:18 p.m. near Pawnee.

Magnitude 2.8 and 3.1 quakes were recorded shortly after 4 a.m. southeast of Pawnee. Two quakes west of Perry were magnitude 3.8 at 9:48 a.m. and magnitude 3.0 at 10:09 a.m. The magnitude 3.8 quake was updated from an initial 3.4.

A 2.9 magnitude quake was at 1:02 p.m. southwest of Helena.



Geologists say quakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans and damage isn’t likely at magnitudes below 4.0.
