Video Shows Power of Overnight Earthquake in Central Oklahoma


A cluster of earthquakes continued to shake central Oklahoma overnight.

Surveillance video from Station 5 of the Edmond Fire Department shows shaking both inside and outside the building late Wednesday night when a 4.2 magnitude quake struck. You can see small debris flying and the lights get knocked out.

Officials say about 1900 customers lost power as a result of the quake. The Oklahoma Geological Survey says Wednesday night's earthquake was the strongest magnitude of at least seven quakes that have struck the area about 15 miles northeast of Oklahoma City since Tuesday.

So far, no injuries or significant damage has been reported. Officials say the injection of wastewater from oil and gas production into disposal wells has been linked to the recent uptick in earthquakes.
