The earthquake's epicenter was located 44 miles east of Oklahoma City and was felt as far away as Wisconsin and South Carolina.

The Oklahoma Geological Survey has issued a warning to the residents to expect more tremors, following the Saturday quake that rippled north through Kansas into Missouri.

We're in tornado country, man, Joey Wakefield, emergency management director for rural Lincoln County, told Reuters. These earthquakes, it just scares the hell out of everybody here.
