The 5.6 magnitude quake caused roadways to buckle near the epicenter and sent a brick chimney tumbling through the roof of a house.
The shaking was felt for more than a minute, starting Saturday evening at 10:53 p.m. local time.
Wire service reports said the quake was also felt as far away as Illinois, Tennessee and Texas.
Aftershocks kept nerves on edge for three days following Saturday’s initial jolt and a 4.7 magnitude foreshock Saturday morning.
Previously, Oklahoma’s most powerful quake was a magnitude 5.5 temblor in April 1952, according to the Oklahoma Geological Survey.
The agency was rushing to deploy a network of remote seismographs near the epicenter of Saturday's quake so any future shaking could be better documented.
