OKLAHOMA CITY -- Earthquakes are shaking things up in the metro. The U.S. Geological Survey reports two quakes hit early this morning and viewers have told us they felt it.

Seismologists report a 3.3 magnitude quake hit just northeast of Spencer about 1:30 a.m. Then a 3.5 quake hit in the same area around 4:20.

Several people reacted on News 9's Facebook page.

Brenda Anderson-Garde says: "I took EQ Insurance out 20 yrs ago. An extra $20 per year."

Laura Smith in Del City says: "The house shook, but no damage. Woke up hubby. I was awake and thought he'd fallen out of bed."

Debra Simmons says: "I was awake and heard the first one. At first, I thought it was an explosion, but the fire radio never went off, so I realized it was an earthquake."

Moira Leisy says: "i felt one and it rattled my house, woke me up kinda but..im getting used to these"

No damage has been reported, but we've also received several comments from viewers who say they have, or plan to get, earthquake insurance.
