Yet again, another earthquake shook the Greater Oklahoma City Metro area. This one happened in Luther on Saturday night. According to a March 1 report by KWTV Channel 9 News in Oklahoma City, the latest earthquake was a 3.2 on the Richter scale.

The earthquake took place about seven miles southeast of Luther, which is about 26 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. It had a depth of about five miles. The earthquake stuck around 10:20 p.m.

“I've lost track of how many earthquakes have hit here,” Stephen Sutton, from Oklahoma City, said. “I'm guessing hundreds, if not thousands, in the past few months. I never thought of Oklahoma as a place with a lot of earthquakes, but it is.”

The smallest earthquakes that can be felt by people range from 2.5 to 2.0. That data is from the United States Geological Survey. Oklahoma has recently had several earthquakes that have been felt by residents.

At the time of publication, there had not been any reports of damage. There were also no reports of injuries.
