Weekend earthquake shakes south-central Kansas

MAYFIELD, Kan. (AP) – Geological officials say a weak earthquake shook an area near Mayfield in south-central Kansas.

The 2.8-magnitude earthquake hit just before 1 a.m. Sunday. The U.S. Geological Survey says the epicenter was just northeast of Mayfield in Sumner County. No damage was reported.

Officials say the quake was just one of 40 minor earthquakes reported in Kansas and Oklahoma so far this year.

Just two days before the new year, a 3.8-magnitude quake was reported in east Wichita.

In December, a Kansas regulatory agency determined that the oil and gas industry wasn’t to blame for a spate of Wichita-area earthquakes.
