WELLINGTON, Kan. (AP) — Emergency management officials in south-central Kansas say there are no reports of damage from a series of small earthquakes that shook Sumner County.
The U.S. Geological Survey says two of the quakes were centered southeast of Conway Springs. A magnitude 3.9 earthquake struck just before 8 a.m. Monday, followed at 10:23 a.m. by a temblor with a magnitude of 3.1.
KWCH-TV reports people in Wellington also felt a quake with a magnitude of 4.1 that was recorded just after 11 a.m. near Medford, Oklahoma, about 40 miles away.
Erin Hauss, a manager at a Sears in Wellington, told KWCH she thought something had struck the store. Hauss didn’t know what had happened until a friend who formerly lived in California told her that earthquakes had struck.
