Earthquake shakes swath of Midwest from Nebraska to Texas

CHICAGO (AP) - An earthquake has rattled a swath of the Great Plains from Nebraska to North Texas.

The United States Geological Survey said that a 5.6 magnitude earthquake happened at 7:02 a.m. Saturday in north-central Oklahoma. It also tweeted that aftershocks may occur.

People in Kansas City, Missouri; Fayetteville, Arkansas; and Norman, Oklahoma, all reported feeling the earthquake. Dallas TV station WFAA tweeted that it felt the quake, too.

Sean Weide in Omaha, Nebraska, said he'd never been in an earthquake before and thought he was getting dizzy.

Weide said he and one of his daughters "heard the building start creaking" and said it "was surreal."
