Seven earthquakes shake Oklahoma Monday morning “Report”

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 temblor was recorded at 3:49 a.m. about 16 miles west-southwest of Medford with a depth of 3 miles.

The quake could be felt as far as Coweta to the east and central Kansas to the north. The USGS indicates its received numerous reports from residents in the Tulsa area.

USGS initially recorded the earthquake as a 4.5 magnitude, but later changed it to a 4.7.

At 5:50 a.m., a 3.0 magnitude earthquake was recorded around 4 miles east-northeast of Edmond. A 3.1 magnitude struck about 12 miles west of Perry in Noble County at 7 a.m.

Monday’s temblor was the same size as a quake that struck near Cherokee in Alfalfa County on Nov. 19. They are the state’s largest since 2011, which saw two 4.8 earthquakes and one 5.6. The November earthquake, as well as other smaller ones recorded around the same time, prompted officials to temporarily scale back or cease operations at several injection wells in the area.

The second strongest temblor of the year was a 4.5 magnitude on July 27 near Crescent.
