July 28—More than a dozen people in Hutchinson reported feeling shaking from an estimated 4.5 magnitude earthquake centered just outside of Crescent, Oklahoma, Monday afternoon.

The 1:12 p.m. quake, about 145 miles from Hutchinson, followed a 4.0 quake in the same region about a half-hour earlier, according to the U.S. Geological Survey website.

The USGS link “did you feel it” showed 15 Hutchinson residents, as well as one from South Hutchinson and one from Haven, filing reports. By 3:30 p.m., nearly 500 Wichita residents also reported feeling it.

“Three of us were sitting together in the family room, and two felt movement at the same time, as if someone was repeatedly pushing our chair, but we were in different chairs,” said Pam Anderson, a resident in the Countryside West subdivision, in an email inquiring if there had been a quake. A caller from the highrise in South Hutchinson reported feeling the quake.
