Three Earthquakes Shake Central Oklahoma




OKLAHOMA CITY Authorities say three earthquakes that have shaken much of central Oklahoma could be felt as far away as Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas.

The U.S. Geological Survey says on its website early Saturday morning that a 4.7 magnitude earthquake struck at 2:12 a.m., with an epicenter about six miles north of Prague in southern Lincoln County. That's about 50 miles east of Oklahoma City.

A 3.4 magnitude aftershock was reported at 2:27 a.m. from the same location.

The survey says a 2.7 magnitude quake also was recorded at 2:44 a.m.

The small deep quake in February changed oil production for awhile, I check wells tomorrow and won't be surprised if it has changed some.

Hey now, Kermit is my hometown actually.
It was named after Kermit Roosevelt,
son of Teddy, long before that frog became famous.

As for where I've been.....I have been working my butt off.
I do believe if I fall out dead at work people will just step over
me and stick another post-it note on me as they pass by.
