Oklahoma had a shaky weekend, with 10 minor earthquakes reported since Friday.

The strongest of the quakes hit central Oklahoma on Sunday night, about 30 miles north of Oklahoma City. It was originally recorded as a 4.2 magnitude before being downgraded to 3.8, NBC News reports. Residents from all over the state reported feeling tremors. All of the quakes were minor, and no injuries have been reported yet.

Friday was an especially busy day for earthquakes, with five small quakes rocking Guthrie, Okla., with magnitudes between 2.7 and 3.1. Geologists say that 2.5 is normally the smallest magnitude detectable by humans.

MOST people will not even feel a 3.1 earthquake.  I've slept thru earthquakes larger than that.

@BongoFury  The Obamanaic already issued a statement about this earthquake.  He said: "BUSH'S FAULT !"

@fafoxy11772 @BongoFuryI believe that to be false. Bush wouldn't dare do anything without Cheney's approval and given that Cheney saw his shadow a couple weeks ago, he won't be out of his chamber for four more weeks.
