More than a dozen small earthquakes have been recorded in northern Oklahoma, and there have been and two in south-central Kansas.

No injuries or damage are reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey recorded 13 quakes Oklahoma between 6:55 p.m. Friday and 2:21 a.m. Saturday, including a magnitude 3.5 temblor near Fairview and a 3.2 magnitude quake near Cherokee, both about 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.

The other Oklahoma quakes range in magnitude from 1.2 to 2.9 and were near Medford and near Pawnee – the site of a magnitude 5.8 earthquake on Sept. 3.

The first Kansas quake was a magnitude 2.9. It was recorded at 8:18 a.m. Saturday near Belle Plaine, about 27 miles north of the Oklahoma-Kansas state line. A magnitude 2.7 was recorded several hours later near Anthony.

Scientists have linked the quakes to the underground disposal of wastewater from oil and natural gas production.
