ARCADIA, Okla. (AP) - A 4.5-magnitude earthquake has shaken central Oklahoma, just weeks after the second anniversary of the strongest earthquake ever recorded in the state.

The U.S. Geological Survey says this afternoon's quake was centered near Arcadia, about 14 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management says no damage or injuries have been reported.

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