A second earthquake shook just after 10 p.m. This quake was a 2.8 on the Richter scale and was recorded at a depth of four miles. Its epicenter was located three miles south southwest of Langston.

Then the third and largest earthquake rumbled. At approximately 10:05 p.m., a 4.0 magnitude temblor rattled seven miles south of town at a depth of about two and a half miles.

Finally, a fourth earthquake creaked in at 10:30 p.m. This quake weighed in at a 2.9 and was recorded at a depth of three miles. The epicenter of this quake was recorded four miles east northeast of Guthrie.
