FAIRVIEW, Oklahoma -

The Earth under Oklahoma continues to move, as a 3.2 magnitude quake rumbled near Fairview.

This most recent quake was recorded at approximately 7:43 a.m., 14 miles northwest of Fairview at a depth of three miles. It was the second earthquake near Fairview since 1:30 a.m., when a 3.8 magnitude temblor shook 19 miles to the northwest of Fairview at the same depth.  

Seismic activity in the state has been on the upswing since Sunday night’s 5.0 quake near Cushing.

No damage or injuries have been reported with the Fairview earthquakes. But significant damage was produced by the Cushing quake.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), earthquakes with magnitudes ranging from 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest ones felt by humans. Damage is more likely with quakes at magnitudes of 4.0 and greater.
