Five more earthquakes have been reported in Oklahoma, including one of a 4.3 magnitude quake at 11:03 a.m. Monday.

It was 5.1 miles south-southwest of Coyle. The Oklahoma Geological Survey's initial report shows it was a 4.3 while the United State Geological Survey reports the magnitude as 4.0.

At about 1 a.m., a magnitude 3.0, west-southwest of Pawnee was recorded, according to the USGS.

The others occurred Sunday evening.  A 3.7-magnitute quake east-northeast of Cherokee, a 2.7-magitude quake northwest of Perkins and a 2.9-magitude quake southwest-south of Langston.

No injuries or damage were reported.

Those earthquakes follow a number of earthquakes Sunday morning, one of which was felt in the Tulsa area.

Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are generally the smallest that are felt by humans, and that damage is not likely from quakes below magnitude 4.0.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey says the state has had 133 quakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater in the last 30 days.
