HARRAH, Okla. (AP) – The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.2 magnitude earthquake has rattled the central Oklahoma town of Harrah.

The temblor was recorded Saturday at around 4:30 p.m. Hours before that, the USGS recorded a 2.8 magnitude quake near the north central town of Langston.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage to property.

Scientists say damage is not likely in earthquakes below magnitude 4.0.
