Northern Oklahoma Hit with 4.3 Magnitude Quake

July 30, 2014

The U.S. Geological Survey says an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.3 struck northern Oklahoma on Monday night.

The USGS reports the quake with an epicenter about 15 miles west-southwest of Medford hit around 9:45 p.m. at a depth of about 4.7 miles.

Grant County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher Angela Wilson says she felt shaking in the Medford office but that no calls related to the quake had come in from first responders or residents.

The USGS says the quake was felt to the south, including in the Oklahoma City area, and in southern Kansas, including near Dodge City, Great Bend and Wichita.

The Enid News & Eagle reports shaking could be felt in downtown Enid for about 15 seconds. Enid is 23 miles north-northwest of the epicenter.
