The Oklahoma Geological Survey says a 4.4 magnitude earthquake has rocked central Oklahoma.
The quake struck shortly after 11 a.m. Monday and was centered near Langston. It was felt widely through the central part of the state, including Oklahoma City. There are no immediate reports of damage.
Austin Holland with the Oklahoma Geological Survey says the quake had a preliminary depth of 3 miles.
The U.S. Geological Survey, however, reported that the quake had a 4.0 magnitude. Quake magnitudes are often revised after data is reviewed.
The Oklahoma Transportation Commission is set to meet and plans to discuss proposed state funding changes that have been passed by a state Senate committee.

Thank you to the 1,200 or so folks of the audience who became members during the Spring 2014 membership drive. About 250 people became new members! The total for the 7 day event was past goal and totaled nearly $177,350.
As you might imagine, for the staff of KGOU, the experience of the membership drive is both exhausting and exhilarating. The exhausting part is easy to understand. The exhilarating part is seeing the names of members set before us from the phone volunteers and staff who process the information.
I have an invitation for you to meet Krista Tippett, host of the very popular program, “On Being.”

Kerr-McGee ran uranium mines in the Navajo Nation, wood-treating businesses across the Midwest and East Coast, and a perchlorate plant on a tributary of Lake Mead, the nation's largest reservoir — and it was messy.
