A pair of small earthquakes shook Wichita Thursday morning, about four-and-a-half hours apart.

The first earthquake was reported shortly before 2:04 a.m., centered to the west of 13th & Webb in the northeast part of Wichita, not far from Collegiate School.

The U.S. Geological Survey registered the quake as a 1.9 magnitude.

This was Wichita's first measurable earthquake in a month-and-a-half.

A second quake then occurred at 6:31 a.m., centered near 13th & Highway K-96, also in the northeast part of Wichita. The Kansas Geological Survey measured the second tremor as a 2.3 magnitude.
