ENID — Three small earthquakes shook the Enid area in a five-hour period on Tuesday. There were no reports of injuries.

Judy Fox of Kremlin told the Enid News and Eagle that the first lasted about seven or eight seconds. She said it was a “small puppy” but strong enough to get her attention.

The U.S. Geological Survey said that quake, about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, was of magnitude 3.0 and centered 21 miles south-southeast of Enid. The researchers said one at 6:30 p.m. was magnitude 3.2 and another one just before 7:40 p.m. was of magnitude 3.5. Those were centered just north-northwest of Enid.

Quakes lighter than magnitude 3.0 are usually not felt by people.

A swarm of quakes struck the same area in July.
