The United States Geological Survey has announced that a 5.6 magnitude earthquake happened at 7:02 a.m. Saturday in north-central Oklahoma. The Quake was felt as far away as Nebraska, including some areas of the Riverbend. The area where the quake was centered saw a magnitude 3.2 temblor earlier this week.


According to the U.S. Geological Survey, "The Richter Scale is not commonly used anymore, as it has been replaced by another scale called the moment magnitude scale." The USGS said the newer scale is more accurate in measuring the size of an earthquake. As of now, no damage reports have been produced.
