3.1 Magnitude Earthquake Rattles Parts of Central Oklahoma


The U.S. Geological Survey states an earthquake has actually rattled main Oklahoma.


The USGS says the 3.1 magnitude earthquake was taped quickly prior to 6 a.m. less than 2 miles east-northeast of Luther in Oklahoma County, about 28 miles east of Oklahoma City. Geologists say the temblor was taped at a depth of 3 miles.


No damage or injuries were reported. Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 are the tiniest felt by humans and damage is not likely from quakes listed below magnitude 4.0.

The variety of magnitude 3.0 or higher earthquakes has skyrocketed in Oklahoma, from a couple of lots in 2012 to more than 900 last years.


Researchers have actually connected the increase to the underground disposal of wastewater from oil-and-gas production and state regulators have asked producers to lower wastewater disposal volumes.
