STILLWATER — Three more earthquakes have rumbled in Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports that a magnitude 3.0 earthquake struck 10 miles north-northwest of Chandler at 3:30 a.m. Sunday. It had a depth of 2.3 miles.

A magnitude 2.5 earthquake hit just before 9 a.m. Sunday one mile south-southwest of Stillwater. It had a depth of 2.7 miles.

The third quake was recorded at 1:53 p.m. 13 miles north-northeast of Enid. The magnitude 3.0 earthquake had a depth of 2.1 miles.

No damage was immediately reported.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans and that damage is not likely in quakes below magnitude 4.0.
