The 5.6 magnitude quake beats the previous record of 5.5, set in 1952.   The epicenter of Saturday’s shaker was 44 miles east northeast of Oklahoma City, but could be felt as far away as Illinois, Kansas, Arkansas and Texas.  This evening’s quake is the most recent in a series that began with a 4.7 magnitude in the wee hours of Saturday morning.

Reports of minor structural damage are coming in, but thus far no major incidents have been reported.

A friend and colleague of mine lives in Oklahoma, and recently shared his story of the quakes that shook his state.  Take a look at his eyewitness reports here:
