3.9 Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Oklahoma

Posted: Updated:

For the second time in less than two months, an earthquake has rumbled parts of Oklahoma strong enough to be felt from Oklahoma City to Bartlesville.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirms the earthquake about four miles southwest of Luther, or about 19 miles east-northeast of Oklahoma City.  The USGS says it was a magnitude 3.9.

NewsChannel 8 has received reports of the earthquake being felt in Oklahoma City, Sand Springs and as far north as Bartlesville.

On October 13th, a 4-point-7 magnitude earthquake jolted the Norman area and could be felt as far north as Wichita and as far south as the Dallas area.

There are no reports of damage or injuries from today's temblor.

The largest earthquake ever recorded in Oklahoma came April 9, 1952 -- a 5-point-5 shaker in El Reno.
