4 more earthquakes rattle south-central Kansas

ANTHONY, Kan. (AP) — Four more earthquakes were reported in south-central Kansas during the weekend. No serious injuries or damage was reported.

The U.S. Geological Survey says the largest quake was a 3.8-magnitude earthquake that was centered northwest of Anthony in Harper County early Saturday. Two 3.1-magnitude quakes hit just northeast of Antony on Sunday, one about 3 a.m. and the other about 8:30 p.m.

A 2.4-magnitude earthquake was reported early Sunday near Bluff City, also in Harper County.

The state has recorded more than 90 earthquakes this year, most in the south-central region. The most severe, with a 4.8-magnitude, was centered near Conway Springs last week.
