An even stronger 5.6 earthquake hit about 30-35 miles east of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Saturday evening according to The Weather Channel when we were listening several hours ago. Apparently shaking could be felt for around 30 minutes and was felt as far away as Arkansas, MO, IL, and I think they mentioned Kansas. There has been some damage done, but nothing in particular was mentioned. ppmickey
