USGS reports small earthquakes continue in central Oklahoma

Team Radio Marketing Group - November 2, 2017 9:36 am

HENNESSEY, Okla. (AP) – A series of small to moderate earthquakes have struck in central Oklahoma.

The U.S. Geological Survey has recorded 11 quakes in the past week near Hennessey, about 45 miles northwest of Oklahoma City.

The most recent quake occurred at 7:06 a.m. Thursday with a preliminary magnitude of 3.4, after a magnitude 2.5 at 6:15 p.m. Wednesday.

The largest quake – a magnitude 4.1 – struck at 4:50 a.m. Tuesday, the same day five temblors of magnitude 3.0 or below were recorded in the area.

No injury or damage is reported.

Thousands of quakes have struck Oklahoma in recent years, many linked to the underground injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas production. Some oil and gas producers have been directed to close some wells and reduce injection volumes in others.
