HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) - Geologists are reporting a spate of earthquakes in south-central Kansas.

The Hutchinson News (https://bit.ly/1OcpWU4 ) reports that in the past week, there have been 11 quakes within the neighboring Kansas counties of Sumner and Harper. U.S. Geological Survey data shows the most activity was in Sumner County, which experienced six quakes. That included four within one tight cluster near Caldwell - though on multiple dates - and two others nearly on top of each other.

The majority of quakes were below magnitude 2. None had a magnitude stronger than 2.5.
