4.5 Magnitude Earthquake Shakes Oklahoma Rattling Nerves

 

 

 

 

” Early reports of little, if any damage, did not take into account the rattled nerves of locals. Weeks ago it was the two-year anniversary of the strongest earthquake ever recorded in Oklahoma and obviously Saturday’s temblor caused some anxiety among local people.

  To make matters worse Saturday, for those less blas’e, two further quake’s occurred. The U.S. Geological Survey reported that the tremor was followed by a “magnitude-2.8 earthquake at 1:26 p.m. about 10 miles northeast of Oklahoma City and a magnitude-3.1 tremor at 5:58 p.m. about 6 miles northeast of the city”. 

 

 

 

 

” The main quake was centered near Arcadia, about 14 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, and was about 5 miles deep.”
