One of the strongest earthquakes in state history rocked central Oklahoma late Saturday night, a 5.6 magnitude temblor that rattled a college football stadium 50 miles away and sent shudders through buildings and homes in distant communities and cities. Emergency authorities had no immediate reports of injuries but one county's sheriff's office said it was responding to numerous calls and checking for any damages.
