Hours ago, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) reported that a 3.0-magnitude earthquake struck 1.5 miles southwest of Cherokee, Alfalfa County, Oklahoma, USA at a very shallow depth of 5km.

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.

Towns or cities that might have felt a weak shaking include Cherokee (pop. 1,600) located 2 miles from the epicenter, Helena (pop. 1,400) located 14 miles from the epicenter.
