Sixth Earthquake in Four Days Recorded in Oklahoma

Sunday, 27 Nov 2011 12:17 PM

 

SPARKS, Okla. — Another small earthquake has been reported in Oklahoma.

A 3.2 magnitude quake struck just before 6 a.m. Sunday about 27 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. No damage was reported, said officials at the Logan County Sheriff's Office.

On Saturday, a 2.4 magnitude tremor was recorded at about 7 a.m. about 50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City near Sparks.

Sunday's earthquake is the sixth in the area since Thursday, when a 3.7 magnitude quake was recorded near Prague. Three more were recorded Friday.

A 5.6 magnitude quake, the strongest ever recorded in Oklahoma, shook the state Nov. 5. That quake damaged dozens of homes, buckled a highway, and caused other damage.

Geologists say earthquakes with magnitudes of 2.5 to 3.0 generally are the smallest that humans feel.
