An earthquake rattled residents Sunday night all over the state of Oklahoma and caused “significant damage” to downtown Cushing.
The U.S. Geological Survey initially reported the quake as a 5.3 magnitude but downgraded it to a 5.0 magnitude.
The earthquake happened at 7:44 p.m. Its epicenter was reported about one mile west of Cushing, 16 miles east, southeast of Stillwater and 53 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The earthquake was less than four miles deep.
The Cushing Fire Department told News 9 no one has been taken to the hospital due to injuries at this time, but downtown Cushing suffered “significant damage.”
The state emergency management office said there has been major damage reported at a senior living apartment complex in Cushing.
The American Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Cushing Youth Center, 7 S Little Ave., for anyone displaced by the earthquake damage. They are supplying cots, blankets and food.
