3.3 Quake Shakes OK's Arbuckle Mountains

Light strength, late night quake shakes south central Oklahoma.
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported late Saturday night that a small quake hit south central Oklahoma.  The quake occurred at 10:06 pm.

The quake was a 3.3 with an epicenter seven miles east of Dickson, OK or 95 miles south-southeast of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

The USGS reports the quake had an epicenter 3.1 miles under the surface of the earth.

The quake was reported to be felt throughout the Arbuckle Mountains of south central Oklahoma.

The United States Geological Survey received at least 33 reports of shaking across southern OK and north Texas.  Those that reported feeling the quake reported it as 'light shaking'.

No one from Texoma reported to the USGS feeling the quake.

A temblor with a strength of 3.3 is unusually strong for the Arbuckle Mountains.

The nearest surface fault in Oklahoma is the Meer's Fault located just outside of Lawton.

This quake was located about 100 miles from the most recent earthquake activity just east of Oklahoma City.
