OKLAHOMA CITY -

Father's Day 2013 got off to a shaky start as three earthquakes shook up parts of central Oklahoma, Sunday morning.

The first quake occurred just after 3 a.m. about a mile south of the town of Jones, Okla., 13 miles east, northeast of the Oklahoma City metro area. The 2.7 magnitude temblor was recorded at a depth of three miles.

About four hours later, just before 7 a.m., a second earthquake rattled residents near Boley, Okla., 24 miles east of Shawnee and 58 miles east of the OKC metro. That quake weighed in at 2.8 on the Richter scale and was also recorded at a depth of three miles.

The third and largest of the earthquakes struck just after 1 p.m. three miles east of Jones. The United States Geological Survey (USGS) measured that quake as a 3.2 magnitude, which also shook three miles below the surface.

No damage or injuries have been reported with any of the earthquakes.

According to the USGS, quakes with magnitudes from 2.5 to 3 are generally the smallest ones felt by humans.
