CUSHING, Okla. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – According to a report by the U.S. Geological Survey, a 5.0-magnitude earthquake shook central Oklahoma Sunday evening.
The USGS reported the earthquake struck at 7:44 p.m. CST, with an epicenter located one mile west of Cushing, about 50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City.
The quake was felt as far away as Kansas City, Missouri, and Little Rock, Arkansas.
The earthquake was originally a 5.3-magnitude, but was later downgraded to 5.0.
There have been no reported injuries in Cushing according to CBS affiliate KWTV as of 9:00 p.m. CST Sunday.

A 4.5 magnitude earthquake struck the northern part of Oklahoma last week, with an epicenter near Pawnee.
