PAWNEE, Okla. – The U.S. Geological Survey is reporting a 3.9 magnitude earthquake has struck northern Oklahoma.

The USGS says the epicenter of the earthquake Sunday night was about 9 miles east of Pawnee. The quake was felt as far north as the southern Kansas border and as far south as Oklahoma City.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or property damage.

Oklahoma’s earthquakes have been linked to oil and gas production, and state regulators have shut down or imposed new restrictions on underground wells that are used for wastewater disposal.
