Earthquakes continue to shake Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:
The state’s shaky weekend continues into the week with an earthquake hitting northern Oklahoma Monday morning.

A 3.9 magnitude earthquake hit the area southwest of the town of Medford at 2:15 a.m. on Monday.

No damage or injuries were reported in the area located about 21 miles north of Enid.

The quake was about 4.8 miles deep.

This comes after the U.S. Geological Survey recorded seven small earthquakes shaking central Oklahoma in a span of just about 14 hours over the weekend.

They ranged from magnitude 2.6 to 2.9 and were centered in the Guthrie, Jones and Langston areas, 15 miles to 30 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The USGS said the quakes were recorded between 7:57 p.m. Saturday and 9:51 a.m. Sunday. No injuries or damage were reported.

Those follow four other quakes, including a 4.3-magnitude temblor near Langston recorded shortly after noon Saturday. The other Saturday morning quakes ranged in magnitude from 2.9 to 3.2.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey has said the state is experiencing unprecedented earthquake activity and that his agency is closely monitoring it to determine whether the quakes are a natural phenomenon or are man-made.
