A scientist studying earthquakes in Oklahoma says more aftershocks are likely following Saturday night’s record setting temblor.

Geophysicist Don Blakeman says Oklahomans could get more aftershocks in the 4.5 magnitude range, but doesn’t expect any more like Saturday’s 5.6.

He says even though it’s listed as an aftershock it’s really no different than any other earthquake.

“The definition of aftershock is essentially a quake in pretty much the same spot caused by the same type of earth movement. In other words, it’s part of that whole stress release in that area.”

Blakeman says the best advice to deal with the quakes is to be prepared and don’t panic.

The US Geological Survey has a section on its website called “Did You Feel It” allowing people to record what they experienced during certain events.
