A 3.8 magnitude earthquake shook up Alfalfa County, near the town of Cherokee, Sunday evening.

This most recent quake was recorded eight miles northeast of Cherokee, or about 102 miles north, northwest of the Oklahoma City metro, at a depth of three miles.

It was the second temblor to shake up the county on Sunday. The first, a 2.6 magnitude quake, struck just before noon in Cherokee, at a depth of about two and a half miles.
