GREENBRIER, Ark. (AP) – Two small earthquakes have been reported in central Arkansas.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 3.3-magnitude quake was recorded about 3:24 a.m. Sunday one mile northeast of Greenbrier in Faulkner County. The geological survey reported a 2.5-magnitude tremor about 5:56 a.m. in the same area.

A Faulkner County Sheriff’s dispatcher said the department had received no reports of injuries or damage.

A slew of small tremors hit the county last year in what seismologists called the Guy-Greenbrier swarm. The largest earthquake, a 4.3-magnitude temblor, hit Greenbrier in February 2011.
