Wednesday's rash of quakes only adds to a very seismic April in the state. Over a dozen earthquakes were recorded around the central part of the state last week, ranging from the magnitudes in the low 2's to as high as 4.3.

No damage or injuries have been reported with any of Wednesday's quakes.

According to the USGS, earthquakes with magnitudes from 2.5 to 3 are generally the smallest ones felt by humans.
