A pair of earthquakes hit southeast Missouri, but there were no reports of damage or injuries.

The U.S. Geological Survey said a 3.4-magnitude earthquake, followed 24 minutes later by a 3.2-magnitude aftershock, hit southeast Missouri on Friday afternoon.

The Daily American Republic reports residents in Butler, Ripley and Carter counties reported feeling the quakes.
