December 8, 2013 at 1:30 am | News Desk


An earthquake of magnitude-4.5 shaked Edmond, Okla., just north of Oklahoma City on Saturday afternoon, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

Residents in the northeast reaches of Oklahoma City reported the most intense shaking when the earthquake struck around 12:10 p.m. (CST), the USGS reported.

Renee Montgomery, an operator at the Oklahoma Emergency Management Department in Oklahoma City, said she first saw the blinds on the window move. Then she heard a rumbling sound.

“It was like a small train rumbling by,” Montgomery said. “Then my desk and my computer shook for a few minutes.”

She said she had not heard any reports of damage or injuries
