Early Saturday morning a Magnitude 4.4 Earthquake struck Oklahoma and was Felt In Wichita, Oklahoma City, And Tulsa. Reports indicated it was strong enough to be felt as far away as parts of southern Oklahoma and northern Kansas. Now according to Fox News, A second 4.5 magnitude quake has been recorded by the U.S. Geological Survey at 5:03 p.m. Saturday about one mile northwest of Cushing. According to reports, Emergency management officials report no significant damage and no injuries.
The city of Cushing is where the world’s most important crude oil storage hub is located and it is used to settle futures contracts traded on the New York Mercantile Exchange. The U.S.G.S. also reports a 3.7 magnitude quake about 13 miles southwest of Medford at 10:20 a.m. and a 3.0 magnitude temblor one mile northwest of Cushing at 5:20 p.m. There was also a magnitude 2.9 earthquake recorded at 7:53 a.m. five miles east of McLoud in central Oklahoma. What’s interesting and was pointed out in my latest update, was the fact that Just days ago Oklahoma City made headlines as city officials and the Oklahoma Supreme Court physically removed the 6-foot-tall, granite sculpture of the Ten Commandments that was ordered to be removed by Oct. 12.
