An earthquake of magnitude 3.1 occurred only 11 minutes ago 7 miles east of Chickasha, Oklahoma, United States, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported.
The quake hit at a very shallow depth of 0.9 miles beneath the epicenter near Chickasha, Grady County, Oklahoma, USA, early evening on Thursday 31 December 2020 at 7:31 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 3.0.
Towns or cities near the epicenter where the quake might have been felt as very weak shaking include Chickasha (pop. 16,500) located 7 miles from the epicenter, Alex (pop. 550) 9 miles away, Dibble (pop. 830) 10 miles away, Blanchard (pop. 8,300) 11 miles away, Cole (pop. 570) 14 miles away, Tuttle (pop. 6,800) 17 miles away, and Newcastle (pop. 9,400) 19 miles away. In Norman (pop. 120,300, 25 miles away), the quake was probably not felt.
