According to residents there are power outages being reported but no injuries reported at this time.
Oklahoma has been experiencing a record number of earthquakes this year. And the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has conformed suspicions that the earthquake increase is not from natural causes. The increase has been instead linked to disposal wells used by the oil and gas industry.
