Oklahoma’s latest earthquakes rumbled early Saturday morning as snow fell in the state.

A 4.6 magnitude quake with an epicenter just west of Perry hit at 7:16 a.m. and was strong enough to be felt in Wichita, Kansas and even up to Hutchinson, Kansas and as far south as Norman.

The U.S. Geological Survey indicated the strong quake was about 3 miles deep with the epicenter located about 4 miles southeast of Covington, 8 miles northeast of Douglas and 11 miles southwest of Garber.

It was the third quake to hit the Perry area Saturday morning. the first, a 3.0 magnitude event was recorded at 4:48 a.m. The second was at 5:13 a.m. and a weaker 2.5 magnitude.

No injuries associated with the earthquake have been reported.
