A 4.2-magnitude earthquake struck Oklahoma Friday morning, and it was felt across the state and parts of Arkansas.

The U.S. Geological Survey confirmed the earthquake, which was felt just before 9 a.m. local time. 

It occurred at 8:47 a.m. north of Stroud and was about six miles deep.

A smaller, 3.8-magnitude earthquake was felt at 9:04 a.m. in the same area. Minutes later, a 3.7 hit the area again.

According to KOCO, officials say 15 4.0-magnitude or greater quakes hit Oklahoma in 2016.

KOCO reported that a number of callers said they felt it as far away as Arkansas.
