GREENBRIER, Ark. (AP) — The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded a preliminary magnitude 3.3 earthquake near Greenbrier in central Arkansas.

The quake was recorded at 5:33 a.m. Tuesday two miles northeast of Greenbrier — about 35 miles north of Little Rock. No injuries or damage was reported.

The quake is the latest in a series of earthquakes in the region. About 100 have been recorded since September — including a magnitude 4.7 in February that's the strongest earthquake recorded in Arkansas in 35 years.

A magnitude 2.6 earthquake was recorded in the same area Monday afternoon.
