(KMOV.com) -- If you felt a little off-kilter Monday evening, you might be able to blame it on an earthquake.  In fact, two earthquakes shook up the bi-state region on Monday, but hardly anyone reported feeling them.
 
According to the United States Geological Survey website, the first earthquake shook up the Metro-East around 6:52 p.m.  It was centered about three miles north of O'Fallon, Illinois and registered a 2.2 magnitude.
 
Another quake broke loose in southeastern Missouri later Monday evening.  This quake was centered in Frohna and happened around 8:42.  It was somewhat less intense, registering a 2.0 magnitude.  Frohna is approximately 50-60 miles north of East Prairie, Missouri where a 4.0 magnitude earthquake hit just a week ago.
 
So far, no damage has been reported.
