Magnitude-4.5 Earthquake Rattles Central Oklahoma

Saturday, 07 Dec 2013 08:22 PM

A magnitude-4.5 earthquake recoded in central Oklahoma by the U.S. Geological Survey has been followed by two smaller earthquakes.

No injuries or damage are reported.

The USGS says the magnitude-4.5 quake was recorded at 12:10 p.m. Saturday near Arcadia, about 14 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The agency reports that temblor was followed by a 2.8-magnitude earthquake at 1:26 p.m. about 10 miles northeast of Oklahoma City and a magnitude-3.1 tremor at 5:58 p.m. about 6 miles northeast of the city.

Marty Doepke, the general manager of Pops Restaurant in Arcadia, says there was no damage at the restaurant from the magnitude-4.5 quake — but that customers and employees were initially surprised, then went back to watching the Oklahoma-Oklahoma State football game.

The strongest earthquake on record in Oklahoma is a magnitude-5.6 on Nov. 5, 2011.
