MEDFORD, Okla. – Less than three days after a 5.0 magnitude earthquake rattled the Sooner State, another strong earthquake was felt.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Geological Survey recorded a 4.0 magnitude earthquake near Medford around 8:15 p.m.

It comes just hours after Gov. Mary Fallin declared a state of emergency for Payne County.

On Sunday evening, the U.S. Geological Survey recorded a 5.0 magnitude earthquake centered just west of the town of Cushing.

The quake shook residents across the Sooner State and was even felt in Kansas City and Little Rock, Arkansas.

When the shaking stopped, Cushing officials announced that several buildings had sustained damage.
