Small tremors are keeping Edmond residents on edge, after a 4.3 magnitude earthquake rumbled through the area, causing damage and power outages on Tuesday.

Tuesday's early-morning quake was followed by several three-point aftershocks all Tuesday afternoon and evening. And it seems the shaking is continuing into Wednesday. The latest temblor was recorded at approximately 12:13 p.m., four miles east northeast of Edmond at a depth of just under four miles.

There have been no reports of damage or injuries since the four-pointer on Tuesday.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), earthquakes with magnitudes from 2.5 to 3 are generally the smallest ones felt by humans. Damage is more likely with quakes at magnitudes of 4.0 and higher.
