Earthquake Shakes Kansas

KSAL StaffNovember 12, 2014

A 4.8 magnitude earthquke centered near Conway Springs shook much of Kansas late Wednesday afternoon. The United State Geological Survey reports that the 4.8 tremor was felt at 3:40 in afternoon, and originated 8 miles south of Conway Springs, or 33 miles south/southwest of Wichita.

Shaking was felt across Kansas, as far east as Kansas City and as far west as Hays.

Shaking was felt in Salina, and Salina Police dispatch received several calls. There were no reports of damage.

The southern part of Kansas has been experiencing an upsurge in earthquakes this year. A panel commissioned by Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback found there wasn’t enough evidence to link the temblors to oil and gas exploration. The panel is recommending more study and the installation of more monitoring stations.
