There were no reported injuries in either Majors or Woods Counties, near the epicenter of the twin quakes, according to newsok.com.
The 4.8-magnitude quake was the strongest in the Sooner State since the November 2011 swarm that included the state’s strongest on record, a 5.6-magnitude temblor in Prague on Nov. 6, 2011. It was the fourth strongest quake on record in Oklahoma, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS).
This was one of 26 separate earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater reported in Oklahoma within a 17-hour span from Wednesday evening through early Thursday afternoon. Twenty-four of those, including the two strongest quakes mentioned above, were clustered in southern Woods County. The other two were reported in the far northern Oklahoma City metropolitan area east-northeast of Edmond.
In 2015, 907 quakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater were reported in Oklahoma, up from 584 in 2014, according to KFOR-TV.
There were only 42 such earthquakes in the state in 2010 and 1 such tremor in 2005.
According to the USGS, there have been 29 such earthquakes already in 2016, the most recent being a preliminary magnitude-3.3 tremor near Fairview at 12:34 p.m. Thursday.
