BREAKING: Massive Earthquake Hits The United States




A huge earthquake has hit central United States, affecting at least four states while Americans were enjoying Labour Day weekend.

The quake measured in at 5.6 magnitude on the Richter scale and struck central Oklahoma, with its effects felt as far as Chicago, 800 miles away. 

Residents in the states of Missouri, Arkansas and Iowa also reported feeling the earthquake at roughly 7.05am local time, The Daily Star reports.

Early reports suggest that homes had been destroyed in Pawnee, Oklahoma, with one Twitter user saying her great-grandma’s house collapsed during the earthquake. 

Others were also quick to take to Twitter to recount their experiences: 



Oklahoma officials have issued earthquake advice reminding people to stay indoors and to be aware of aftershocks: 

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) confirmed:
There has been a very substantial earthquake with aftershocks going on for several minutes.
Back in February, there was a 5.1 earthquake measured in Oklahoma which was the third largest ever felt in Kansas City.
