Three small earthquakes rattled central Oklahoma early today.

The quakes ranged from 2.7 to 4.7 in magnitude, with the first temblor hitting the region at 2:12 a.m., according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

While there were no injuries or major damage, residents reported feeling the shaking.

"It shook for a long time ... you could feel the whole house shaking and we could hear the dishes rattling in the kitchen too," said Jim Greff, city manager of Prague, which is about six miles away from the epicenter of the quakes and 50 miles east of Oklahoma City.

Claudie Morton, a police dispatcher in Prague told ABC News Radio that it "felt like the ceiling was going to cave in, the building shook, the windows and glass rattled..."

But some people didn't even feel the quakes.

Jess Anshutz, who manages a bar in Oklahoma City, said he didn't even realize there was an earthquake until someone texted him about it.

"It just kind of jolted and scared people but from what I've heard, there's not any damage at all," Anshutz said.

ABC News' Sharon Reid contributed to this report.
