Earthquake Hits Oklahoma This Morning

Southern Oklahoma – Residents as far south as the DFW Metroplex reported feeling Wednesday’s earthquake.  That included in Bryan and Atoka Counties in Oklahoma. Evelyn Rhodes said, “I felt something real hard.  And then I looked up and saw my walls movin’.  I called a couple of people.  Then I called the Sheriff’s office and they confirmed it was an earthquake.”

Over at the Office of Emergency Management, Director James Dalton worked on compiling the reports and sending them to the State Office of Emergency Management in Oklahoma City.  No damage reports at all, Dalton said. The strongest earthquake in Oklahoma state history is a magnitude 5.5 that hit El Reno in 1952, making today’s 5.1 the second strongest in Oklahoma history.
