    Geologists say the earthquake was recorded at 8:59 a.m. Saturday about 16 miles (26 kilometers) east of Cherokee, about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City. The earthquake was recorded at a depth of five miles (8 kilometers).

    News outlets in Wichita, Kansas, which is about 75 miles (120 kilometers) northeast of the earthquake's epicenter, reported feeling the quake. Some residents more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) north of Wichita in Manhattan, Kansas, also reported feeling tremors. No injuries or damage was reported.

    Thousands of earthquakes recorded in Oklahoma in recent years have been linked to the underground injection of wastewater from oil and natural gas production. Regulators have directed producers to close some wells.

    All I can thankfully say is ...

    Doubt very much that they would be interested in moving to the mountains of North Georgia, as we all, and I do mean ALL ... when and if of absolute necessity ...have those nasty things that go "bang" and can stop you dead in your tracks!

    The most important thing is for you, Rock to keep safe from the blinking earthquakes!

    I keep forgetting exactly where you live in Oklahoma.
