Earthquake centered in northern Oklahoma rattles state

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A magnitude 4.4 earthquake centered in northern Oklahoma has shaken the state, with reports of it being felt hundreds of miles away.

The U.S. Geological Survey reported Monday's quake happened at about 3:20 p.m., with the epicenter located about nine miles east of Cherokee near the Kansas border. The quake was reportedly felt by people in several states, including Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas.

The Alfalfa County Sheriff's Office said there were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

According to the Oklahoma Geological Survey, a 4.4 earthquake would be among the top 10 strongest earthquakes recorded in the state.

The strongest Oklahoma earthquake on record is a 5.6 quake centered in Prague in November 2011.
