Earthquake Cluster Rattles Oklahoma, Kansas

PAWNEE, Okla. (AP) — More than a dozen small earthquakes have been recorded in northern Oklahoma and one in south-central Kansas. No injuries or damage are reported. The U.S. Geological Survey recorded 13 quakes between 6:55 p.m. yesterday (FRI) and 2:21 a.m. early this morning (SAT), including a magnitude 3.5 temblor near Fairview and a 3.2 magnitude quake near Cherokee, both about 100 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. The other Oklahoma quakes range in magnitude from 1.2 to 2.9 and were near Medford and near Pawnee — the site of a magnitude 5.8 earthquake on September 3rd. The Kansas quake was magnitude 2.9 and recorded at 8:18 a.m. today (SAT) near Belle Plaine, about 27 miles north of the Oklahoma-Kansas state line. Scientists have linked the quakes to the underground disposal of wastewater from oil and natural gas production.
