ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (KAKE) -

A 5.6 magnitude earthquake early Saturday morning caused damage in Oklahoma and Kansas. 

The earthquake was located near Pawnee, Oklahoma and occurred around 7:02 a.m. The town of Pawnee received damage, from items thrown off shelves to stone facades broken off of at least one building. There was one reported injury in Pawnee. 

In Kansas, the damage was much less severe. 

"We noticed these cracks over here," said Stan and Deborah Robertson.

Their home near Arkansas City had a damaged foundation. 

The Robertson's are waiting to fix their cinder block foundation.

"There are going to be more earthquakes coming so we are waiting," they said. 

Many people in the eastern part of Kansas felt the earthquake, causing them to wake up on their extended holiday weekend. 

"The house was shaking really hard," said a Winfield woman.
