WICHITA, Kan. — A 4.3 earthquake rattled north-central Oklahoma and south-central Kansas Monday evening.

The earthquake was first recorded as a 4.0 quake at 9:46 p.m. about 15 miles west-southwest of Medford, Oklahoma. The quake was felt as far west as Dighton in Lane County in western Kansas and in the Manhattan and Topeka area in northeast Kansas.

KAKE News received numerous calls and emails from viewers reporting they felt the earthquake. One came from Wichita resident Jerry Cathcart, who's experienced so many quakes recently in Oklahoma that he's started to keep a log of them.

"I keep a notebook and write down the dates, and whether it was just a quiver or a shake, or whether it was actually a roll," Cathcart said. He described Monday night's quake in terms of a wave. "You could feel a roll."

Wichita police dispatchers say they received no reports of damage or injuries from the quake.
