This is an idea I had so people can keep better track of the ongoing earthquakes. You can sign up for earthquake alerts to be sent to your email through the USGS (https://sslearthquake.usgs.gov/ens/). I will be posting the information from the emails for all earthquakes in Oklahoma over 2.0 in this thread.

The USGS alerts are very interesting, and makes you realize how much more frequent earthquakes are in reality than what we likely believe!

For an online source for the latest Oklahoma earthquakes over 2.0 it's the Oklahoma Earthquake Page (http://stillwaterweather.com/okareaearthquakes.php). On Tuesday there was an earthquake near Langston, an out of the ordinary location.

According to the data in the email I posted, this most recent one was 8 miles east of Okc. It was quite noticeable due to proximity. Also the closest to the city I have encountered.
