CRESCENT, Okla. (AP) – More than a dozen small to moderate earthquakes have been recorded in Oklahoma since Friday afternoon, including one with a preliminary magnitude of 4.2 that was felt in Kansas and Texas.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports the quake occurred at 8:21 a.m. Saturday 12 miles north of Crescent, about 45 miles north of Oklahoma City. Residents about 270 miles north in Topeka, Kansas and about 240 miles south in Dallas reported feeling the quake.

Logan County Sheriff’s Sergeant Greg Valencia says there are no reports of damage or injury.

Geologists say damage is not likely in earthquakes below magnitude 4.0
