An earthquake of magnitude 3.4 occurred only 8 minutes ago 6 miles southwest of Waynoka, Oklahoma, United States, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 1.1 miles beneath the epicenter near Waynoka, Woods County, Oklahoma, USA, early afternoon on Wednesday 23 December 2020 at 3:28 pm local time. 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 identified a second report from the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) which listed the quake at magnitude 3.4 as well.
Based on the preliminary seismic data, the quake should not have caused any significant damage, but was probably felt by many people as light vibration in the area of the epicenter.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Waynoka (pop. 970) located 6 miles from the epicenter, and Quinlan (pop. 22) 7 miles away.
Other towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Mooreland (pop. 1,300) located 15 miles from the epicenter, Avard (pop. 24) 15 miles away, Woodward (pop. 13,000) 24 miles away, and Alva (pop. 5,200) 25 miles away. In Fairview (pop. 2,700, 34 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
