An earthquake rattled central Oklahoma damaging multiple buildings



An earthquake rattled parts of central Oklahoma Sunday night and was felt as far away as Arkansas, Kansas and Missouri. 

The U.S. Geological Survey reports that the earthquake hit around 7:44 p.m. CST. Its epicenter was located about one mile west of Cushing and about 53 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, according to CBS News.

The USGS initially measured the earthquake at 5.3 magnitude, but later lowered that to 5.0. 

The Cushing Police Department said there was "quite a bit of damage" caused by the earthquake. 

Many took to social media, posting photos of the damage. 

So far, there is no word on any injuries.
