ENID, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma resident says a preliminary 4.8-magnitude earthquake that struck a Kansas town Wednesday caused at least $25,000 in damage to his home.

The quake originated near the town of Conway Springs, Kansas and shook parts of that state and Oklahoma.

Oklahoma City television station KOCO reports that Enid resident Roy Semrad, who lives about 80 miles south of where the temblor struck, says his home sustained foundation damage, has ceiling tiles out of place and gaps in the walls, among other damage.

He says the house has been in his family since the 1920s.

Kansas has experienced 94 earthquakes so far this year. Oklahoma has also experienced an uptick in quakes in the past several years.
