OKLAHOMA CITY >> The U.S. Geological Survey says a 4.1 magnitude earthquake rattled an area about 30 miles north-northeast of Oklahoma City early Sunday and was followed by a smaller quake hours later in the state. There were no reports of any injuries or damages from either temblor.

Geophysicist Randy Baldwin at the USGS Earthquake Information Center in Golden, Colo., said the larger quake at 2:14 a.m. CST was centered about 4.3 miles southwest of Langston and prompted several dozen reports from residents who felt the ground shake. But he told The Associated Press by phone that no area resident had reported feeling the 2.5 magnitude quake centered near Jones, recorded at 5:34 a.m.

Baldwin said Oklahoma has sporadically recorded several minor quakes in recent months but those are without any discernible pattern.
