4.7 Earthquake Hits Oklahoma, Kansas

KSCB News - November 30, 2015 11:14 am

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 4.7 magnitude earthquake struck northern Oklahoma early Monday. There are no immediate reports of damage, but the quake was felt throughout much of the state and into Kansas.

The USGS says the quake hit at 3:49 a.m. in extreme northern Oklahoma. The epicenter was 16 miles west-southwest of Medford, or about 80 miles south of Wichita, Kansas. The USGS gave the earthquake a preliminary magnitude of 4.5 but upgraded it to 4.7 later Monday.

Also Monday, a 3.0 magnitude quake struck just outside the Oklahoma City metropolitan area at 5:50 a.m.

Another 4.7-magnitude temblor hit northern Oklahoma on Nov. 19. That earthquake prompted state regulators to shut down some oil and gas wastewater disposal wells in the area and reduce the volume at others.
