LANGSTON, Okla. – Many Oklahomans were rattled by an earthquake Thursday morning.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, a 4.0 magnitude quake struck around 5:39 a.m. near Langston, Okla.

A short time later, the agency downgraded the earthquake to a 3.6 magnitude.

NewsChannel 4’s Ali Meyer and Kent Ogle felt the earthquake while they were on set.

Oklahoma’s earthquakes have been linked to the injection of wastewater underground from oil and gas production.

State regulators have recommended reducing the volume or shutting down some of the disposal wells.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Oklahoma has already had more than 90 earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater this year.
