The first quake was measured at a 3.0 on the Richter scale. It struck just before 3 p.m., 14 miles south southeast of Medford, or about 78 miles north of the OKC metro, at a depth of three miles.

A second earthquake, this one a 3.2., was recorded shortly after the first. The second temblor was centered three miles south southeast of Stillwater.
