A minor earthquake south of Wilson caught some attention on Wednesday afternoon.
The quake reached a 3.1 on the Richter scale at 4:47 p.m. Central Time. Jonathan Tytell, a geophysicist with the United States Geological Survey, said it’s the only quake the area has seen in the last 30 days.
“Just looking at the map, most quakes are between Oklahoma City and the southern border of Kansas,” Tytell said.
Tytell said the area has seen three smaller quakes in the last year; a 2.7 on July 19, a 2.9 on July 31 and a 2.5 on August 13.
“Those were east of the one today,” Tytell said.
