Getting reports of the earthquake being felt as far south as Austin, TX and as far north as Omaha, NE & Des Moines, IA. That's ~750 miles!

Earthquakes shocks are increasing across the world. There is a about the earthquake on the media on daily basis. Yesterday, another earthquake was recorded in Luganville, Vanuatu with 5.8 magnitude. Areas that are close to the sea coasts are more dangerous because sometimes the earthquakes are even accompanied by the tsunami.

Four small earthquakes are recorded in Oklahoma during the last weekend. The largest was a magnitude 3.2 but it is a good news that no damage was reported. Geologists say earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 to 3.0 are general the smallest that are felt by humans and damage is not likely in earthquakes below magnitude 4.0. But the depth of the earthquake center depends on the amount of damage that is produced.
