A magnitude 4.0 earthquake struck southeast Oklahoma early Tuesday morning, and there is at least one official report of it being felt in Kansas.

The earthquake was recorded at 2:33 a.m., 16 miles south southwest of McAlester, Okla. There have not been any reports of significant damage or of any injuries. The U.S. Geological Survey received a report of some shaking being felt in Wichita, more than 250 miles away from the earthquake's epicenter.

That report, however, is the only one of the earthquake being felt in Kansas.
