(Cushing, Okla) - Another earthquake has rattled North Central Oklahoma Tonight.  At 8:48 PM Central Time, another tremor rattled through.

The tremor follows two major tremors and dozens of aftershocks.

Monday night's tremor may be classified as an aftershock, depending on the severity.

The rumble and vibration made it unmistakable, even though strong to severe thunderstorms were in the area, with enough thunder to make one wonder if it was in fact a quake.

The U.S. Geological Survey now says the earthquake was 4.7 on the Richter scale, and was centered 5 miles Northwest of Prague, and about 43 miles east of Oklahoma City.

The location is about 30 miles south of Cushing.
