The second earthquake within 24 hours shook the Salina area late Saturday night.
According to the United States Geological Survey, an earthquake measuring 2.7 on the Richter Scale was recorded at 10:24 PM. The earthquake was centered about 5.5 miles southeast of Salina. The earthquake was at a depth of 6.2 miles. It originated just south and west of the intersection of Schilling and Simpson Roads.
The earthquake came about 23 hours after a similar quake, about 5 miles to the east, in the area of Country Club and Woodward Roads. That quake was a 2.8.
Both earthquakes were felt throughout Central Kansas. There were no reports of damage or injury with either quake.
Earthquakes of this magnitude, ranging between 2.5 and 5.4, are often felt but only cause minor damage.
