Earthquake Rumbles Southeast Okla.

A small earthquake and two aftershocks rumbled parts of Pittsburg County, Okla., on Sunday, May 27, the Oklahoma Geological Survey reported.

The earthquake happened about 4 p.m. and measured 3.2 on the Richter scale, said Jim Lawson, chief geophysicist at the Oklahoma Geological Survey.

The first aftershock, measuring 2.6, was six minutes later and a third, 2.1 on the Richter scale, hit at 5:45 p.m.

Reports came into the survey office of people feeling the quake in McAlester, Lamar, Okmulgee, Holdenville and Weleetka.

“We do have occasional earthquakes in this part of the state,” Lawson said. “There’s usually three a year in that area, but because they’re smaller, they’re generally not felt by anybody.”
