Oklahoma rattled by shallow 5.1 magnitude earthquake

A 5.1 magnitude earthquake has shaken an area near Oklahoma City. The U.S. Geological Survey reports the earthquake hit at 11:24 p.m. Friday and was centered 4.9 miles northwest of Prague, about 57 miles east of Oklahoma City, where residents reported feeling the shaking. No injuries or significant damage was reported. Residents from Lawton, Enid and Tulsa reported feeling the earthquake. The earthquake was just 1.8 miles deep and temblors that hit close to the surface can make the shaking more intense. The quake is in the same area as a 5.7 magnitude earthquake that struck in 2011 and about 60 miles south of a 5.8 magnitude quake in 2016.
