MEDFORD, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey reports a small earthquake was recorded in northern Oklahoma.

The U.S.G.S. reports the magnitude 3.6 quake struck at 9:57 p.m. Tuesday near Medford, about 95 miles (153 kilometers) north of Oklahoma City.

No injuries or damage is reported. Geologists say damage is not likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.

State regulators have directed several oil and gas producers in the state to close injection wells or reduce the volume of wastewater they inject beneath the surface
