Oklahoma experiences 4.3 magnitude quake 

Yes, you did just feel that. Oklahoma City experienced a magnitude 4.3 earthquake around 9:06 a.m. Oct. 13, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

No damage or injuries have been reported to the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management. Activity was reported in Bryan, Caddo, Canadian, Cleveland, Coal, Comanche, Garvin, Johnston, Muskogee, Oklahoma, Pontotoc, Stephens and Tulsa counties.

"It's obviously extremely unusual for an earthquake of this magnitude to be felt in Oklahoma City," said Mayor Mick Cornett. "We are awaiting further information, but we have no reason to believe this is anything other than merely an interesting event."
