LEONARD, Okla. (AP) _ An Oklahoma Geological Survey seismograph is still recording waves created by a deadly earthquake in Indonesia.

Geophysicist Jim Lawson says the equipment in Leonard, just south of Tulsa, has recorded about 300 aftershocks. He says it will probably continue receiving information for another week despite being 97-hundred miles from the quake.

The earthquake and resulting tidal wave is now blamed for more than 76,000 deaths.

Lawson says the first wave was recorded in Leonard at 7:13 Saturday night, about 15 minutes after the quake. The largest wave was recorded at 7:36 Saturday night.
