Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake Shakes Part of Northern Oklahoma

Saturday, 09 June 2018 08:04 PM

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 4.4 magnitude earthquake shook parts of northern Oklahoma and neighboring Kansas.

Geologists say the earthquake was recorded at 8:59 a.m. Saturday about 16 miles east of Cherokee, about 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The earthquake was recorded at a depth of five miles.

News outlets in Wichita, Kansas, which is about 75 miles northeast of the earthquake's epicenter, reported feeling the quake. Some residents more than 100 miles north of Wichita in Manhattan, Kansas, also reported feeling tremors. No injuries or damage was reported.

Thousands of earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma in recent years have been linked to the underground injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas production. Regulators have directed producers to close some wells.
