Oklahoma Earthquake Rattles Residents From Texas To Nebraska
A Saturday morning earthquake, reportedly one of the largest in Oklahoma's history, rumbled and left residents shaken well beyond the state's borders.
According to an Associated Press report posted by KLTV, the 5.6 magnitude earthquake went off at 7:02 a.m. in the north-central part of Oklahoma. There were no immediate reports of significant damage as of the publication of this story. According to the United States Geological Survey, this earthquake matches the magnitude of one experienced back in 2011 in the same area.
It was also reported that residents in Kansas City and St. Louis, Missouri; Fayetteville, Arkansas; Des Moines, Iowa; and Norman, Oklahoma all felt the effects of the event, with residents as far out as Dallas stating they felt the quake.
Significant seismic activity has recently increased in Oklahoma, with some state regulators linking said increase to the disposal of wastewater from the production of oil and natural gas.
