    Oklahoma earthquake shakes North Texas.

    A 4.3 magnitude earthquake was reported near Norman, Okla., at 9:06 a.m. Wednesday and was reportedly felt as far south as Fort Worth.

    The quake's epicenter was about 10 miles east of Norman and about 20 miles SSE of Oklahoma City, according to the United States Geological Survey.

    NBC DFW recieved reports from readers in Keller, Little Elm and Fort Worth who all claimed to have felt the quake.

    "I felt it in my feet and saw plants shaking, then it went away," said Thomas Black, who lives northeast of McKinney. "Later, my wife woke up and said, 'What was that that happened a few minutes ago that shook my bed and made the dresser handles swing?'"

    Matthew Simpson said his whole house shook from the quake.

    "Weird.  My whole house just shook like we had an earthquake.  The plant stands in my breakfast room were rocking back and forth for about 10 seconds," said Simpson.

    According to the USGS , the quake occurred at a depth of between 3.1 and 4.4 miles.

    So far, there have been no reports of damage associated to the earthquake.
