STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - The U.S. Geological Survey reports two small earthquakes have been recorded in north-central Oklahoma.

The Payne County Sheriff's Office says no injuries or damage have been reported.

The USGS says the first was a 2.9 magnitude quake recorded at 7:19 a.m. Thursday about 13 miles west of Stillwater and the second was a 3.2 magnitude quake recorded at 10:20 a.m. 8 miles southeast of Stillwater.

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