The U.S. Geological Survey reported from Golden, Colo., on its web site that it monitored a 5.2 magnitude quake at 10:53 p.m. local time Saturday, centered about 44 miles east-northeast of Oklahoma City.

Authorities have reported a series of quakes on Saturday, including a 4.7 magnitude quake earlier in the day.

Ooten said no injuries were reported to emergency management officials and she had no reports of major damage.
