MEDFORD, Okla. (AP) - A pair of earthquakes has shaken parts of northern and western Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 4.2 magnitude earthquake was recorded about 10:30 a.m. Monday around 14 miles south-southeast of Medford in Grant County. The temblor was recorded at a depth of around two miles.

Geologists say a 3.3 magnitude earthquake was recorded more than six hours earlier in Woodward County in western Oklahoma. The quake was recorded about 4 a.m. about 15 miles east-northeast of Mooreland. It occurred at a depth of about three miles.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported. Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and damage is not likely from quakes below magnitude 4.0.
