Earthquakes In Oklahoma, Another earthquake hit Oklahoma on Saturday, Nov. 5., at 10:53 p.m. CDT, reports the U.S. Geological Survey. The magnitude-5.6 earthquake measured 3.1 miles deep, a rather shallow depth. Its center was approximately four miles east of the city of Sparks, or about 45 miles east of Oklahoma City.
Three earthquakes shook Oklahoma Saturday.
Authorities say the aftershocks could be felt as far away as Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas, according to The Associated Press.
The U.S. Geological Survey reported on its Web site that a magnitude-4.7 earthquake hit at 2:12 a.m. CDT.
The epicenter was six miles north of Prague in southern Lincoln County, Okla. The AP lists this as 50 miles east of Oklahoma City and 75 miles southwest of Tulsa.
A magnitude-3.4 aftershock was reported at 2:27 a.m., and a magnitude-2.7 aftershock 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 of a sudden the walls started shaking and the windows were rattling. It felt like the roof was going to come off the police department.”
