A 2.3-magnitude earthquake hit three miles southwest of Trumann on Sunday afternoon, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The earthquake hit at 2:21 p.m.

No damage or injuries have been reported, according to the Geological Survey.

According to Geological Survey records, it is the first seismic activity in Arkansas since a 1.8-magnitude quake hit five miles north of Quitman on Wednesday.

Multiple tremors hit near Trumann, in the same general area as Sunday's quake, over a two-day period in late February. The largest of those quakes was a 3.6-magnitude that registered four miles southwest of Trumann at 4:28 p.m. on Feb. 23.
