About 30 minutes ago a significant earthquake (for oklahoma) occurred. So far reports have been received from Northern Oklahoma all the way south to the D/FW Metroplex. At this point no significant damage has been reported, but nerves are shot. The USGS estimates the earthquake was not strong enough to cause any substantial damage. The only location that may have received minor damage is the small town of Hall Park, Oklahoma with around 1,000 individuals impacted.
The earthquake occurred just after 9:05 AM and was quickly reported on social networks. The earthquake occurred at a depth of 3.1 miles so the effects may have been amplified somewhat as the event was somewhat shallow.

“It only lasted a few seconds. First there was a low rumbling noise, then the bilding shook briefly. Nothing was damaged, but there was quite a bit of movement.”
