Earthquakes shake the midwest

CHICAGO (AP) — An earthquake has rattled a swath of the Great Plains, from Kansas City, Missouri, to central Oklahoma.

The United States Geological Survey didn’t immediately post data on its website about the size of the earthquake or where it was centered.

People in Kansas City, Missouri, Fayetteville, Arkansas, and Norman, Oklahoma, all reported feeling the earthquake at about 7:05 a.m. Saturday.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey map, a 5.6 magnitude earthquake was reported just northwest of Pawnee, Oklahoma at 7:02 a.m. The quake had a depth of 4 miles and consisted of 196 phases, per the USGS.

The USGS reported feeling the quake from North Texas to North Dakota.
