A swarm of more than 70 small earthquakes has rattled Oklahoma in the past week, raising concerns that the state’s quake problem is getting worse.

The largest quake measured magnitude-4.8 and struck around midnight Wednesday near the town of Fairview. No significant damage has been reported, although it shook pictures and crockery.

“It was felt all over the county, pretty much all over the state,” Major County Undersherrif Darin Reams said. “This one rattled a little bit.”

Smaller quakes continued Thursday.
