Two earthquakes were recorded within about 20 minutes of each other early this afternoon in northwest Del City. The first quake at 12:24 p.m. rated a 2.7 on the Richter scale, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. The second quake at 12:41 p.m. rated a 2.5. The epicenters were near SE 18 between Bryant and Mansfield avenues.

Several workers at Wickline Methodist Church, about 3 miles east of the epicenter, felt the quakes. "It was just a mild vibration. The second time we heard something. It was a little bit stronger Nothing came off the walls," Judie Webb said. "The first time I barely felt it. I thought it was my imagination. The second time there was no doubt about it.

"I just thought it was workers working on new construction of our church. Other people thought it was an earthquake."
