The third-largest earthquake in recorded state history rocked parts of western Oklahoma on Saturday morning near the site of other large, recent temblors.
The quake registered a 5.1 magnitude and was recorded northwest of Fairview at 11:07 a.m., according to preliminary estimates from the U.S. Geological Survey.
A 3.9 aftershock followed about 10 minutes after the earthquake, according to the USGS.
At 5.1, the temblor will be the state’s third-largest earthquake, according to Oklahoma Geological Survey data.
