Magnitude 4.5 earthquake strikes near Shattuck, Ellis County, Oklahoma, USA
4.5 quake 25 May 1:24 pm (GMT -5)
4.5 quake 25 May 1:24 pm (GMT -5)
A magnitude 4.5 earthquake near Shattuck, Ellis County, Oklahoma, USA, was reported only 23 minutes ago by the United States Geological Survey, considered the key international and national agency that monitors seismic activity in the US. The earthquake occurred at a very shallow depth of 4.8 miles beneath the epicenter around noon on Tuesday 25 May 2021 at 1:24 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.
A second report was later issued by the European-Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC), which listed it as a magnitude 4.2 earthquake.
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.
In Shattuck (pop. 1,400) located 2 miles from the epicenter, the quake should have been felt as light shaking.
Weak shaking might have been felt in Woodward (pop. 13,000) located 31 miles from the epicenter, and Canadian (pop. 3,000) 37 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 41 miles from the epicenter, Buffalo (pop. 1,300) 41 miles away, and Perryton (pop. 9,300) 50 miles away.
