A very shallow magnitude 3.2 earthquake was reported in the morning near the village of Dibble, Oklahoma.
3.2 quake 10.8 miles SSE of Blanchard, Oklahoma, 10 Nov 10.01 am (GMT -6)
According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the quake hit on Tuesday 10 November 2020 at 10.01 am local time at a very shallow depth of 0.2 mile. Shallow earthquakes are felt more strongly than deeper ones as they are closer to the surface. The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be revised within the next few hours or minutes as seismologists review data and refine their calculations, or as other agencies issue their report.
Our monitoring service at VolcanoDiscovery identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.2 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake was probably felt by many people in the area of the epicenter. It should not have caused significant damage, other than objects falling from shelves, broken windows, etc. Weak shaking might have been felt in Dibble (pop. 800) located 3 miles from the epicenter, Cole (pop. 600) 8 miles away, Washington (pop. 600) 8 miles away, Bradley (pop. 100) 10 miles away, and Lindsay (pop. 2,800) 11 miles away.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Norman (pop. 120,300) located 19 miles from the epicenter, Moore (pop. 60,500) 25 miles away, and Mustang (pop. 20,200) 28 miles away.
