Harper County in southern Kansas was shaking after a pair of earthquakes were reported within hours of each other but apparently didn't cause any damage.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a magnitude 3.8 earthquake has hit south-central Kansas.

The USGS said the earthquake was reported shortly after 9 a.m. Monday about 11 miles northwest of Caldwell, which is about 60 miles south of Wichita, near the Oklahoma border. The USGS initially reported the quake to be magnitude 4.2, but later revised that to a magnitude 3.8.

There were no immediate reports of damage or injuries.

The earthquake had a depth of 3.1 miles.

The USGS website says the earthquake was felt as far north as El Dorado, which is northeast of Wichita.
