Ok­la­homa City: One of the largest earth­quakes in Ok­la­homa’s his­tory shook the state on Satur­day morn­ing, and was felt by peo­ple from Ne­braska to North Texas. The 5.6-mag­ni­tude earth­quake hap­pened at 7.02am in north-cen­tral Ok­la­homa, the United States Ge­o­log­i­cal Sur­vey said. No ma­jor da­m­age was im­me­di­ately re­ported, though video showed cracks slic­ing through the sides of build­ings and bricks fall­ing. The USGS said the quake was rel­a­tively shal­low, about four miles deep, and thus felt over a wide range. The agency also warned that after­shocks were likely. The Guardian
