The latest temblor hit around 8:46pm Monday, November 7, 2011 (in the middle of a major severe weather and tornado outbreak in the same location) near Prague, OK. This one was measured at a magnitude 4.7.
This is the third in a series of strong quakes that began on very early Saturday morning. Just as the third quake on Monday was a 4.7 so was the first one very early on Saturday morning. The second quake was the strongest in the history of the Sooner state at 5.6. That quake was felt in 9 states from New Mexico to Illinois.
Just for trivia interests, events like this when dozens of quakes happen in a small area over a small period of time are none as "Quake Swarms."
