LANGSTON, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey says two earthquakes struck central Oklahoma on Monday, including one with a 4.1 magnitude.

The USGS initially reported the quake with a magnitude of 4.4, but revised it downward. It was recorded at 10:57 a.m. Monday 4 miles west of Langston. A smaller earthquake, with a 3.4 magnitude, was recorded at 11:35 a.m. about 5 miles northeast of Langston. The area is about 35 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

Officials with the city and Langston University say there are no reports of injury or damage.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey has said it is likely that many recent earthquakes in the state have been triggered by the injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas drilling operations.
