CUSHING, Okla. – A large earthquake Sunday left some buildings in Cushing, Okla. damaged.

Around 7:45 Sunday night, a 5.0 magnitude earthquake rattled the Sooner State.

The USGS originally said it was a 5.3 magnitude quake; however, it was later downgraded to a 5.0.

The earthquake, which was centered near Cushing, was felt as far away as Kansas City and Little Rock, Ark.

After the earthquake, Cushing Assistant City Manager Jeremy Frazier held a news conference, confirming some residents suffered minor injuries.

He also said several buildings in the area sustained damage.

The quake caused bricks to fall from several buildings in downtown Cushing.

City officials later blocked off certain streets downtown because they feared aftershocks could cause more bricks to fall.

Cushing Public Schools closed for the day to assess the damage.
