Earthquake Oklahoma: Three Earthquakes Rock Central Oklahoma

Three earthquakes have rocked central Oklahoma Saturday morning. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 4.7-magnitude earthquake shook the state at 2:12 a.m., with an epicenter about six miles north of Prague in Lincoln County. That is about 50 miles east of Oklahoma City and 75 miles southwest of Tulsa.

A 3.4-magnitude aftershock occurred just 15 minutes after the initial quake from the same location. Another 2.7-magnitude aftershock was recorded at 2:44 a.m.

“Oh, man. I’ve never felt anything like that in my life,” Prague City Police Department dispatcher Claudie Morton told the Tulsa World. “It was the scariest thing. I had a police officer just come in and sit down and all the sudden the walls started shaking and the windows were rattling. It felt like the roof was going to come off the police department.”

Oklahoma Geological Survey researcher Austin Holland told a local TV station that the earthquake and aftershocks occurred on a known fault line.

No injuries or deaths have been reported but the quake was felt by sleeping residents throughout Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Texas.
