OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma is no longer known as the state where the wind comes sweeping down the plains.
Now, the Sooner State also leads the world in seismic activity.
This year, more than 5, 000 earthquakes have been recorded and studied in our state. Residents have become accustomed to the little shaking, rattling and rolling.
However, experts say earthquakes in Oklahoma will likely increase in magnitude over time. Now, research said it's only a matter of time before we get a big one that will change life for those of us living here. Over the years, damage has been caught on camera.
"Well, Oklahoma State pulled out a squeaker there," the Cowboys fan said on video in 2011 when the room began to quake. "We're having an earthquake. Do you hear that?"
In 2011, a 5.6 magnitude earthquake shook the state, becoming the largest quake in recent Oklahoma history. Now, research shows a bigger, stronger one could hit soon.
