Question of the Day
More small earthquakes hit Oklahoma City area
SPARKS — Another small earthquake was reported in the Oklahoma City area, the sixth since Thursday.
The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.2-magnitude quake struck just before 6 a.m. Sunday about 27 miles northeast of Oklahoma City. The Logan County Sheriff’s Office says no damage was reported.
A 3.7-magnitude quake near Prague on Thursday began the weekend’s temblors. On Saturday, a 2.4-magnitude tremor was recorded at about 7 a.m. about 50 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, and three more were recorded Friday. Earthquakes with magnitudes of 2.5 to 3.0 are the smallest that humans generally feel.
A 5.6-magnitude quake, the strongest ever recorded in Oklahoma, shook the state Nov. 5. That quake damaged dozens of homes, buckled a highway and caused other damage.
City forces showdown with Occupy Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA — Members of the Occupy movement in Philadelphia say they expect some civil disobedience if protesters are forced to dismantle their encampment downtown.
Mayor Michael A. Nutter set a deadline of 5 p.m. Sunday for demonstrators to remove their belongings. Some have agreed, but not all. The city has not said what will happen if the protesters do not move.
Diane Ackerman, a member of the group’s legal collective, said the movement will remain strong regardless of what happens. Occupy Philadelphia has been largely peaceful since it began. Despite a few dozen arrests, there have been no violent confrontations with police like elsewhere.
Philadelphia’s eviction notice is unique in that protesters are being asked to move to make way for a construction project.
