PORTLAND, Ore. -- A small earthquake has struck in central Oregon.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.6-magnitude temblor struck at 1:17 a.m. Thursday and was centered near the town of Maupin, about 90 southeast of Portland.

The USGS website showed that the quake's intensity was light and very few people reported feeling it.

Quakes of this magnitude rarely cause any problems.
