UPDATE: Earthquakes Shake Oklahoma, Kansas

KSAL StaffJuly 28, 2015

Five earthquakes shook portions of Oklahoma and Kansas Monday.

The U.S. Geological Survey reports a 4.5 magnitude quake at 1:12 p.m. Monday and a 4.0 magnitude quake at 12:49 p.m. Both were about 3 miles northeast of Crescent, or about 35 miles north of Oklahoma City.

Another 4.5 magnitude earthquake was measured in the same area at 8:18 Monday night.

A 2.5 magnitude and a 3.2 magnitude quake both also shook the same area on Monday.

The Logan County Sheriff’s Office and officials at Crescent City Hall say there are no reports of damage or injury.

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission recently announced plans to place more than 200 oil and natural gas wastewater disposal wells under scrutiny as it investigates whether they are triggering earthquakes in the state.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey issued a report in April saying it’s “very likely” most of the state’s recent earthquakes were triggered by the injection of wastewater from oil and gas drilling operations.

The quakes Monday afternoon were felt in portions of Oklahoma and Kansas.
