Powerful earthquakes are shaking Oklahoma City and the metro early Monday morning. 

According to the Oklahoma Geological Survey, the first quake, a 3.3 magnitude, was reported at 5:31 a.m. about four miles north, northwest of Spencer.   Dozens of News 9 viewers called and have e-mailed us to say they felt it all across central Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the earthquake was 3.5 in magnitude.

News 9 was on the air when we felt it at our studios near Wilshire and Kelley Avenue. 

A second, more powerful quake was felt at 5:47 a.m. According to the Oklahoma Geological Survey, this earthquake was 4.5 in magnitude, and was centered about two miles west, northwest of Jones.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported that this earthquake was 4.2 in magnitude.

It was felt as far away as Enid and Shawnee.

And again, at 6:25 a.m., a 3.3 magnitude earthquake was recorded five miles northwest of Jones.
