A 5.6 magnitude earthquake rattled Oklahoma Saturday night, tearing up roads and damaging buildings. The quake was the strongest in Oklahoma history and the second one to hit the state in 24 hours.

ALL SHOOK UP: Logan Devereaux, age five, on Sunday walks among the bricks that fell from a Sparks, Okla., home after an earthquake and large aftershock hit the area over the weekend. No injuries were reported from the magnitude 5.6 earthquake, which caused widespread damage.

Residents of central Oklahoma scrambled to survey damage and clean up debris after the state's largest recorded earthquake struck late Saturday evening and sent a large aftershock surging through the area early Sunday morning.

The Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management said there were no reported injuries or deaths, but structural damage was widespread, including demolished chimneys and cracked foundations. U.S. Highway 62, a two-lane road that runs diagonally across the state between the Texas and Arkansas borders, buckled in several places.

The magnitude 5.6 earthquake that hit Saturday night at 10:53 p.m. was centered near Prague, Okla., 44 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.

It could be felt throughout the state and as far away as Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas and northern Texas, said Paul Earle, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey in Golden, Colo.


I live near Fort Wroth TX and I didn't feel a thing. There is a Fault Line near here. But, the "Experts" have said that a large Earth Quake here is Unlikely... I hope they are Right! But, I think I will keep on Praying, just the same;)
