    HUTCHINSON, Kan (KWCH) - 11:38 a.m.
    Hutchinson Public Schools was one of several earthquake reports Friday morning.

    The district posted to Facebook, "Yes, we felt the earthquake in Hutchinson USD 308. All our students and staff are safe. At this point, our staff have seen minor damage but are surveying our buildings. Again, students and staff are safe."


    The district said some of the damage included loosened ceiling tiles, cracks in a couple of walls and a door that wouldn't close.


    So far no reports of injuries have been made.

    We're beginning to evidence of Friday morning's damaging earthquake in Reno County.

    Several people in Hutchinson and South Hutchinson have posted photos of bottles that have fallen off shelves, falling ceiling tiles and broken windows.

    Kraft Electric, Inc. posted video to its Facebook page showing the moment the earthquake hit causing its office to shake violently and sending more items tumbling from the shelves.

    No injuries have been reported with the quake.

    Eyewitness News has a team in the area gathering more information from emergency crews, business owners and residents.

    A 4.2 magnitude earthquake shook central Kansas early Friday morning.

    According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the epicenter was 3 miles south/southwest of South Hutchinson.

    People bogged down the phone lines at the KWCH 12 newsroom as soon as it hit around 7:59 this morning.
    Tim Black, who lives near 17th and Severance in Hutchinson, told us his house shook and things fell off the walls.

    Hutchinson resident Alice Hinnen called in, saying things fell off shelves in her home. She told us she has felt earthquakes before, but this is the strongest one yet. She also reported feeling an aftershock.


    Jake Goertz lives in South Hutchinson. He wrote on Twitter, "Earthquake lasted a good 20 seconds here. I have felt four aftershocks."


    Goertz did not note any damage, except for items that fell off shelves.

    #BREAKING We're getting some calls from people in Hutchinson, who say they believe they experienced an earthquake this morning.

    One person reported things fell off his walls and shook his whole house. We're looking into this. USGS has not put down a report.

    People across Kansas felt this earthquake. We've heard reports from people as far away as Topeka, Hays, Arkansas City, and into northern Oklahoma.
