WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - A small earthquake felt by some in east Wichita Sunday morning was the ninth in the area recorded since Thanksgiving and the sixth recorded this week.

Data from the Kansas Geological Survey shows that the earthquake Sunday was recorded at 11:26 a.m. with a magnitude of 2.3, centered near 13th and Greenwich, the same general area as other recent earthquakes in Wichita.

On Monday, Dec. 14, Eyewitness News spoke with a seismologist with the Kansas Geological Survey about the source of the earthquakes and why there have been so many in less than a month in the same general area.
