FAIRVIEW, Okla. (AP) — Three earthquakes have rattled as many towns nearly a week after a 5.1 magnitude shook northwest Oklahoma and was felt in seven other states.

The U.S Geological Survey says a 3.2 magnitude quake it near the town of Fairview shortly after 2 a.m. Friday. A pair of 2.7 magnitude quakes hit near the towns of Edmond and Alva several hours later.

There were no immediate reports of injury or damage.

The survey reported Saturday's 5.1 magnitude earthquake in northwest Oklahoma that it was reportedly felt across Kansas, Missouri, New Mexico, Nebraska, Texas, Arkansas and Iowa.

It was the third-strongest temblor ever recorded in the state where the power and frequency of earthquakes has dramatically increased in recent years.
