At least three earthquakes shook much of central Oklahoma early Saturday, rousing people from their sleep as far away as Kansas City.4.7 will certainly get your attention, and judging from Facebook, it did.
A 4.7 magnitude earthquake struck at 2:12 a.m., with an epicenter about six miles north of Prague in southern Lincoln County, according to a report from the United States Geological Survey. A 3.4 magnitude aftershock was reported at 2:27 a.m. from the same location, the survey reported. The survey also reported a 2.7 magnitude quake at 2:44 a.m.
Chatter on social media sites Facebook and Twitter and NewsOK.com indicated the quake was felt as far away from the epicenter as Bethany, Oklahoma City, Norman, Tulsa, Wichita, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo.
