Not completely unsuspected:
An earthquake struck the eastern portion of Venezuela on Friday with a magnitude of 5.6 according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The earthquake, which was 7 miles deeps, was approximately 235 miles east of Caracas, the capital of Venezuela. The earthquake is said to be of “medium” strength that caused panic but so far no reports of injury.
With all the earthquake tragedy going on, it doesn’t surprise many that there is some fear of another terrible quake shaking another city to the ground. According to reports locals in Oklahoma got a good shaking Friday morning when a earthquake struck.
The USGS confirmed the quake had a magnitude of 4.0. It hit around 9:18 a.m. about 3 miles northeast of Jones, OK. There has been no reports of injures or damage.
