Cushing Assesses Earthquake Damage In Daylight

Posted: Updated:
CUSHING, Oklahoma -

Crews are surveying extensive damage left behind from a 5.0 of magnitude earthquake in Payne County.

In downtown Cushing, there is everything from moderate to severe damage. Cushing emergency crews said in a news conference last night they were concerned about those buildings because they were built in the early 1900s.

They said there were some gas leaks but those have been contained and a few people suffered only minor injuries. No problems were reported at hospitals or hotels in the area, though.

Emergency management crews say they plan on an update Monday morning at 9.

Additionally several city buildings will be closed today due to damage from the earthquake. Cushing Senior Citizens Center, Cushing Public Library, and the Cushing Youth Center will be closed as crews work to repair and clean up damages.

For anyone who was displaced by the earthquake, the Red Cross has set up a shelter at the Cushing Youth Center on S Little Ave.
