A pair of small earthquakes rattled residents in far northern part of the state, along the Oklahoma-Kansas border, Tuesday.
The first 3.1 magnitude quake was recorded at 12:05 p.m. in northern Harper County, about 148 miles northwest of the Oklahoma City metro, at a depth of about 16 miles. The second temblor, also a 3.1 magnitude, struck at 12:13 p.m. just to the northeast of the first quake, at a depth of three miles.
No damage or injuries have been reported with these quakes.
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.
While Oklahoma has seen a steady decrease in earthquakes over the past couple of years, they're still happening and geologists want to know why.
The Oklahoma Corporation Commission is taking action following a spike in earthquakes in Kingfisher County.
Oklahoma's earthquakes are shaking up homes in the area, and that's having an impact on the real estate market.
