Christmas Day Temblors Shake Central Oklahoma

U.S.G.S. National Earthquake Information Center
Guthrie Christmas Day quake details.

Two earthquakes have rattled parts of central Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.8 earthquake struck in Logan County at about 2.30 p.m. on Christmas Day about three miles south of Guthrie and 30 miles north of Oklahoma City.

Less than three hours later, a 3.7 magnitude earthquake struck about 15 miles east-northeast of Perry in Noble County, about 60 miles north of Oklahoma City. The survey says the quake was recorded at 5:11 p.m.

Authorities say no injuries or damage has been reported following the temblor.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest felt by humans and that damage is not likely from quakes of below magnitude 4.0.
