Three small earthquakes shook through Enid on Tuesday

ENID, Okla. (AP) -- Three small earthquakes shook the Enid area in a five-hour period on Tuesday. There were no reports of injuries.

Judy Fox of Kremlin told the Enid News and Eagle (http://bit.ly/1c1Jibt ) that the first lasted about seven or eight seconds. She said it was a "small puppy" but strong enough to get her attention.

The U.S. Geological Survey said that quake, about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, was of magnitude 3.0 and centered 21 miles south-southeast of Enid. The researchers said one at 6:30 p.m. was magnitude 3.2 and another one just before 7:40 p.m. was of magnitude 3.5. Those were centered just north-northwest of Enid.

Quakes lighter than magnitude 3.0 are usually not felt by people.

A swarm of quakes struck the same area in July.
