‘Significant damage’ in key US oil hub Cushing after 5.0 quake shakes central Oklahoma
A 5.0-magnitude earthquake struck some 2km west of the town of Cushing, Oklahoma, causing serious structural damage to downtown area and power outages. The town is a major hub in US oil supply with its 13 pipelines pumping millions of barrels a day.
The quake struck some at a depth of just 5km, US Geological Survey reported, revising the magnitude from 5.3 to 5.0.
Despite being a moderate tremor on the Richter scale, the shallow quake resulted in several buildings partly collapsing, also causing a power outage.
