The 5.6 magnitude earthquake that shook Oklahoma Saturday morning also rattled much of the Midwest.

According to a map from the United States Geological Survey, people reported feeling the shaking north in Lincoln, Nebraska and Des Moines, Iowa and as far south as Austin, Texas. There are also reports of the quake being felt east to St. Louis, Missouri.

The data, registered by individuals on the USGS's website, shows tremors felt in at least seven states.

Several aftershocks were also reported after the initial quake hit.

The earthquake ties a record for the strongest recorded in Oklahoma history, matching the November 2011 quake in Prague .

Earlier this week, the same spot, which is about 70 miles northeast of Oklahoma City and about 55 miles northwest of Tulsa, saw a magnitude 3.2 temblor.
