Minutes ago the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported that a 3.3-magnitude earthquake struck a Haskell County, 27 mi northeast of McAlester, Pittsburg County, Oklahoma, USA at a shallow depth of 7.2km.

The exact magnitude, epicenter, and depth of the quake might be changed again later on as seismologists review their data and calculations, or else as other agencies issue their own reports.

Based on preliminary data it is believed that the earthquake did not cause any significant damage. The earthquake was felt as weak shaking in Quinton (pop. 1000) located 3 miles from the epicenter, Wilburton (pop. 2,700) located 13 miles from the epicenter, and Stigler (pop. 2,800) 15 miles away.
