A series of earthquakes rattled central Oklahoma overnight and throughout the day.

Experts at the Oklahoma Geological Survey say this is a unique situation because of the number of earthquakes registering on the Richter Scale.

Central Oklahoma was shaking Tuesday as dozens of earthquakes and aftershocks were reported by the Oklahoma Geological Survey. Seismologists said the frequency and number of the quakes was unprecedented in Oklahoma.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quakes ranged from very small to 4.3 magnitude.

The earthquakes mainly happened along an active fault line from Wellston down the Turnpike to Luther and because they were all relatively shallow, the damage potential could have been high if the quakes were stronger.

"We can't tell if it's going to get worse and this has been such an odd set of earthquakes that it's hard to say what might come in the future, not that we can predict the future anyway," said Seismologist Austin Holland with the Oklahoma Geological Survey.

Experts warn that Oklahomans should prepare for earthquakes because they do happen and have happened for years.
