A 3.4-magnitude earthquake was recorded about 10:56 a.m. today near Midwest City, data from the Oklahoma Geological Survey show.

The epicenter of the quake was northwest of Midwest City, roughly nine miles east of Oklahoma City, the data show. It was recorded about 50 miles west of Prague, an area of the state with oil and natural gas disposal wells seismologists say could be causing earthquakes.

Today’s quake was probably too small to cause damage, OGS seismologist Austin Holland tells FOX-25.
