A series of earthquakes originating just south of Perry, Okla., could be felt as far north as Wichita late Monday afternoon. The U.S. Geological Survey said the two earthquakes occurred at 4:06 p.m. and 4:27 p.m.
The earthquakes measured magnitude 3.8 and magnitude 3.9. USGS physicist Jessica Turner said there should be little, if any, damage.
In Wichita, which is about 100 miles north of Perry, the earthquakes were felt as a slight shaking. In Perry, Turner said, they could be felt as a stronger shaking, with windows rattling and loose items falling.
Turner said there could be more smaller-magnitude earthquakes in or around the Perry area following Monday afternoon’s quakes.
