3.8 magnitude quake rattles central Oklahoma

🕐 1 min read

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A 3.8 magnitude earthquake has rattled part of central Oklahoma.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, the quake was recorded at 9:06 p.m. Thursday near the city of Spencer, which is northwest of Oklahoma City.

No damage or injuries were immediately reported.

The quake comes less than a week after a 5.8 magnitude earthquake centered in northeast Oklahoma caused at least one injury and damaged more than a dozen buildings.

KOCO-TV reports three smaller quakes struck northern Oklahoma earlier Thursday afternoon in less than a 10-minute time frame.

The uptick in earthquakes in Oklahoma over the last five years has been linked to the high-pressure injection of oil and gas wastewater deep underground.
