FAIRVIEW, OK (KSWO) – Five earthquakes were recorded in northern and central Oklahoma Wednesday morning.

The earthquakes ranged between a magnitude 2.8 and 3.8. The magnitude 3.7 and 3.8 earthquakes hit the Fairview area at 12:19 a.m. and 9:26 a.m. A magnitude 2.9 earthquake was recorded at 4:40 a.m. about 16 miles southwest of Medford, Oklahoma.

A 3.1 magnitude earthquake hit the Edmond area at 12:51 a.m. and 2.8 hit again at 6:51 a.m.

There were no reports of damage of injuries from the earthquakes.

Many of Oklahoma’s earthquakes have been linked to the injection of wastewater deep underground. State regulators have ordered volume reductions in disposal sites near recent earthquakes.

State Rep. Richard Morrissette will host a public hearing on Friday, Jan. 15, at the State Capitol from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. in rooms 412 A, B and C for anyone who wants to talk about the recent increase in Oklahoma’s earthquakes.

“After years of unprecedented levels of quakes and being handed every excuse in the book by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and Governor Fallin and her team, last week’s earthquake activity in Edmond was really all our citizens are going to put up with,” Rep. Morrissette (D-OKC) said.

The Capitol is located at 2300 N. Lincoln Blvd. in Oklahoma City. Parking for attendees is on the south side of the Capitol in visitor designated parking. You should use the southeast security entrance and then take the elevator to the fourth floor. Rooms 412 A, B and C will be down the hall on the left. Call 405-557-7404 for more information.
