PRAGUE, Oklahoma -

A day after the largest quake in Oklahoma history, another one shook the Sooner State Monday evening.

The U.S. Geological Survey says Monday's tremor was a 4.7 magnitude and struck around 8:45 p.m.

The epicenter was five miles northwest of Prague, six miles southeast of Sparks, nine miles east, northeast of Meeker, and 44 miles east of Oklahoma City. The earthquake was only three miles deep.

News On 6 felt it here in our downtown Tulsa studio, and several viewers have posted on our Facebook page saying they felt it too, including folks from Norman, Chickasha, Weleetka, Fort Gibson, Lake Tenkiller, and Midtown Tulsa

Viewers are saying it lasted for about 10 seconds and rattled windows and kitchen cabinets.

"It didn't last very long, but it really shook the windows!!" Posted Betty Raper Olson.

"We felt it in Salina, OK. Our dishes rattled in our cabinets," posted Glo Ward.

The USGS says Monday's quake was felt from as far south as Dallas to northern parts of Kansas.
