Felt in seven states.
13 Feb 2016 – Preliminary data registered this morning’s earthquake at magnitude 5.1, centered 17 miles northwest of Fairview, Oklahoma.
According to the USGS and the Oklahoma Geological Survey, the magnitude 5.1 quake, which was followed by a pair of aftershocks, was the third strongest on record in the Sooner State, behind only the Nov. 6, 2011 Prague tremor (magnitude 5.6) and the April 9, 1952 Yukon quake (magnitude 5.5).
It was felt as far away as Fayetteville, Arkansas, the Kansas City metro area, and far southeast Nebraska.

“I see that Oklahoma, like Missouri, steals its place names instead of inventing them,” says Deb. “I shudder to think how they pronounce “Prague”, if they also follow MO’s rules of pronunciation!”
