The Oklahoma Geological Survey office in Leonard says the booms that happened at 10:14 p.m. last night may have came from an earthquake in Lincoln County. It was centered near Prague and measured a 2.6.

They say booms are common with earthquakes, and other booms people heard during the day Wednesday may have come from smaller earthquakes.
