Another earthquake occurred in central Oklahoma at 4:22pm CST on Saturday. It was the latest quake to hit the area after a string of dozens of earthquakes that began last year. Saturday’s earthquake was the largest out of the bunch recording a preliminary 4.4 magnitude. This was later revised after reviewing the data to a 4.1 magnitude earthquake. The earthquake was large enough to do minor property damage in Oklahoma and it was felt all the way into northwest Arkansas. Three reports were filed with the USGS in our area. The earthquake was felt in Fayetteville, Lowell, and Siloam Springs as light to weak shaking. Here is the map of where the earthquake was observed.
