Progress Made In Cushing Recovery Efforts

Posted: Updated:
CUSHING, Oklahoma -

Recovery continues in Cushing following Sunday's 5.0 earthquake. 

Cushing Assistant City Manager Jeremy Frazier says much of the work has been focused on clearing and securing the downtown area. Crews are out again Tuesday moving bricks and debris out of right of ways to help with traffic and businesses.

City staff and volunteers working in the downtown area have reduced barricades blocking parts of downtown to a five-block area. That is down from a 15-block area Monday.

According to Oklahoma Emergency Management, 47 buildings in the downtown area have cosmetic damage as a result of the quake. Additionally, OEM reports 25-30 homes have reported quake damage.

The Cimarron Towers apartment building remains closed to residents while structural engineers asses the damage.

Homeland Security officials will visit Cushing Thursday for a joint damage assessment.
