The quake's epicenter was in Edmond, just north of Oklahoma City, the same site as a 4.3 quake earlier in the week, notes the news station's website.

There have been a series of quakes in the area that have caused state regulators to call for more restrictions on oil and natural gas companies that use fracking, the high-pressure pumping of salty wastewater into the earth for drilling purposes, according to The Associated Press.
