Oklahoma had a 4.5-magnitude earthquake around noon on Saturday, reports the U.S. Geological Survey. The earthquake was located about 4 miles from northwest of Jones, Oklahoma and could be felt as far away as Edmond, Norman, Bethany and Oklahoma City. The quake’s epicenter was at a depth of 5.7 miles, according to UPI.com on Dec. 7.
While no injuries or damage was reported, the shaking was felt and there was no disguising that the event was an earthquake for the people near the epicenter. While some folks stopped for a moment to process what just happened as the quake rumbled the ground around them, Oklahoma State’s Ben Grogan never missed a beat.
Grogan was all set to attempt a 41-yard field goal when the earth moved. You can’t keep a good man down, so without hesitation, Grogan kicked the ball and made that field goal in the middle of that 4.5 magnitude earthquake.
As impressive as it was for those at the stadium, the social networks lit up relaying that Oklahoma St. “just made a FG during an earthquake," which is what Jake Trotter wrote on Twitter. Trotter’s next post on Twitter said, “This is not a joke. The ground was moving as Ben Grogan was kicking that FG.#OUvsOKST., reports Yahoo Sports today.
