Loud, booming earthquakes continue to rattle homes and nerves across Oklahoma on an almost daily basis, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey.
The agency tracking seismic activity in Oklahoma reported more than 20 quakes Saturday. The United States Geological Survey, the national agency that reports on the largest quakes in country and abroad, reported a 3.5-magnitude quake Saturday in the Edmond area.
Many of the quakes in the latest swarm are centered near Liberty Lake in Logan County.
Nancy York lives in the area. Her tile floor, her ceiling and her walls were all damaged. She said the new cracks in her newly built home were caused by the constant quakes. Not only did York feel eight tremblers Friday, she heard them.
“Felt like bombs going off. It's just a huge loud noise and then it's like a reverb from that boom that just shakes the entire house,” York said.
“When you are on top of a small earthquake it generates a boom. It’s kind of similar to an explosion,” said seismologist Austin Holland with OGS.
