The U.S. Geological Survey recorded a 4.1 magnitude earthquake in Logan County early Monday — several hours after a 4.0 quake struck in the same area.

The 4.1 temblor occurred about 7 miles north of Crescent at 2:25 a.m, with a depth of 3 miles, according to the USGS. It was reportedly felt as far east as Tulsa. 

About 6:30 p.m. Sunday, the agency recorded a 4.0 earthquake about 7 ½ miles north of Crescent at a depth of about 4 ½ miles. Additional 2.5 and 3.0 quakes have been felt in the area since then.
