Both quakes were centered about 95 miles (153 km) northwest of Oklahoma City. The first quake hit at 11:07 local time (1707 GMT), and the second one came about 10 minutes later, the USGS said.

The larger earthquake was described as the “second largest in Oklahoma and the largest in this general area”, by a geophysicist at the USGS National Earthquake Information Centre.

John Bellini said Oklahoma’s previous largest was a 5.6 earthquake in 2011.

The epicenter of the larger earthquake was 95 miles (153 km) northwest of Oklahoma City and around a mile (1.6 km) deep underground, the USGS said.
