Quake Felt Across Oklahoma


It was centered about 8 miles northwest of Stroud, Oklahoma.

Oklahomans were tweeting and calling news stations at about 8:50 Friday morning as an natural disaster was felt from Oklahoma City to Claremore.

People living in Fayetteville, Rogers, Farmington, Bella Vista and Mulberry, Arkansas felt the quake, according to reports logged by the U.S.G.S.

There have been no reports of injuries or damage.


A woman who answered the phone at the prison declined to comment and a spokesman for the parent company, Nashville, Tenn. -based CoreCivic, did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

"Everything is still in the initial stages right now", Skinner said, "but [shuttering some wells] is a distinct possibility".

The first natural disaster originated near Stroud and had a depth of 9.3 km, according to the United States Geological Survey.

Those quakes were followed by two others below a magnitude of 3. It was the second quake reported in Kansas so far in July.
