Okla. quakes shake southern Kansas Friday morning

It was centered about 8 miles northwest of Stroud, Oklahoma.

A pair of earthquakes in central Oklahoma Friday morning reportedly shook people in southern Kansas.

There have been no reports of injuries or damage.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission said its induced seismicity department and the Oklahoma Geological Survey are investigating the quakes.

Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey said it was a 4.2 magnitude natural disaster that struck at 8:47 a.m. north of Stroud. The U.S. Geological Survey recorded a second quake about 17 minutes later, recorded at 3.8 magnitude.

An quake was felt across the state Friday morning.

An open plain better known for tornados, Oklahoma became an natural disaster hot zone around 2011, surpassing California in magnitude 3 or greater earthquakes in 2014. The USGS says it was also felt in Arkansas.
