Kansas Establishing Seismic Monitoring System

KSAL StaffNovember 13, 2014

An earthquake that rattled parts of Kansas and Oklahoma is the 94th earthquake reported this year in Kansas.

The 4.8-magnitude earthquake on Wednesday was the strongest in Kansas this year, with most quakes recorded in south-central Kansas.

The vibrations were felt across Kansas, northern and central Oklahoma and even a county in northwest Missouri.
The most severe damage appeared to be in Milan in Sumner County. The town’s former post office, a community center and several homes suffered some structural damage. No injuries were reported. Argonia Fire Chief Scott Spinks says that his Sumner County town also was shaken hard.

Gov. Sam Brownback announced Wednesday that the state will fund six-station portable seismic network to monitor increased seismic activity in Harper, Sumner and Barber counties.
