Oklahoma seismicity peaked in 2015, with more than 900 tremors of greater than magnitude-3 recorded.

More than an hour after the quake, nearly all customers had their power restored.

The quake was the sixth recorded in the Edmond area since 9:42 p.m. Tuesday. The OCC said the probe was focused on disposal wells that inject into the Arbuckle formation.

The OCC added that a field inspector from its Oil and Gas Conservation Division (OGCD) has checked Arbuckle wells within a 10-mile radius of the quake activity, and that recent data on the disposal wells' operations were being reviewed by the commission. The commission also said that no disposal wells are in the area but a known fault is in the vicinity.

There have been no reports of damage or injuries associated with this natural disaster.

The Edmond area is part of the much larger quake Area of Interest (AOI) in which the OCC has instituted volume reductions in Arbuckle disposal well operations.
