Three earthquakes rumbled Logan County near Oklahoma City late Sunday, about a week after a 4.1 magnitude temblor caused minor damage at the county jail in Guthrie.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.8-magnitude earthquake struck shortly before 11 p.m. Sunday. The USGS initially estimated the earthquake as a 4.2 magnitude, but it was later downgraded to a 3.8 magnitude.
The earthquake was centered about 7 miles south-southwest of Guthrie. Guthrie is about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City.
Another earthquake with a 2.9 magnitude was recorded about 30 minutes later followed shortly by a third earthquake with a 3.0 magnitude. No damage has been reported.
On Feb. 8, an earthquake caused several cracks in the walls at the Logan County jail.
