Four earthquakes rattle eastern Logan County

The three o’clock hour in the morning and afternoon had eastern Logan County shaking with four reported earthquakes on Saturday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.


All four quakes were centered just across the Logan County line in Payne County.

The first quake struck at 3:13 a.m. and registered a 2.9. Just six minutes later a 3.2 magnitude quake hit.

Approximately 12 hours later at 3:15 p.m., the area was hit with a 2.6 quake and the largest quake registering a 3.5 struck at 3:59 p.m. at a depth of 4.7 miles. All others were 3.1 miles deep.

All four epicenters were south of Highway 33 near Karsten Creek Road, which is just outside of Coyle.

No damages or injuries associated with the earthquake have been reported. Damage and injury are far more likely with quakes that register 4.0 and higher, the USGS reports.
