Pair of earthquakes hit central Oklahoma
Crescent, Okla. — The U.S. Geological Survey says two earthquakes hit central Oklahoma in the overnight hours, but no damage or injuries have been reported.
The USGS says a 4.2 magnitude quake struck late Monday in Logan County. The quake was centered 3 miles north-northeast of Crescent, and the USGS says it was felt as far north as Wichita, Kansas.
A 4.1 magnitude earthquake hit the same area shortly after 5 a.m. Tuesday. The USGS says that temblor had an epicenter 4 miles north of Crescent, or 37 miles north of Oklahoma City. Another smaller quake hit near Enid around 10:30 p.m. Monday.
On Monday, the USGS released a survey that found Oklahoma has a 1 in 8 chance of damaging quakes in 2016, surpassing California as the state with the highest probability.
