ARCADIA, Okla. (AP) — A 4.5 magnitude earthquake has been recorded in central Oklahoma by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The USGS says the tremor was recorded at 12:10 p.m. Saturday near Arcadia, about 14 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management spokeswoman Keli Cain says no injuries or damage were immediately reported. A spokesman for the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

Marty Doepke, the general manager of Pops Restaurant in Arcadia, says there was no damage at the restaurant and that customers and employees were initially surprised, then went back to watching the Oklahoma-Oklahoma State football game.

The strongest earthquake on record in Oklahoma is a magnitude 5.6 on Nov. 5, 2011.
