An earthquake hit today in Oklahoma in the Oklahoma City metro area.

The quake struck just after 10 p.m. on Monday, about 15 miles west-southwest from Perry, 21 miles east-southeast of Enid, and 25 miles north-northwest of Guthrie.

The 4.1 magnitude quake also hit about 29 miles west-northwest of Stillwater and 52 miles north of Oklahoma City.

It was recorded by the U.S Geological Survey at a depth of 3.1 miles.

Though the quake was felt widely, there have been no reports of major damage.

A 2.7 magnitude aftershock later hit in the same area.

Twitter users noted the quake.

“Since when did Oklahoma become the earthquake capital of the US?” said one.

“Shaking reportedly felt in Wichita, Kansas, and Norman, Okla., after magnitude-4.2 earthquake strikes near Perry, Oklahoma,” added another, citing the Weather Channel.

“It’s just a matter of time before Oklahoma has ‘the big one.’ They keep getting bigger. #earthquake #fracking,” added yet another.
