In the early hours of Friday morning, the USGS released a map showing the magnitude of the magnitude 5.3 earthquake and its epicenter on Thursday in Richter Scale, an area of central Kansas.
The USGS also released a video showing how the area is divided into four zones based on the earthquake magnitude and the location of the epicenter.
The map showed the epicentre in Richtter Scale with a width of approximately 50 kilometers and a depth of about 3.8 kilometers.
It is a relatively short distance from the epicend of the earthquakes that struck in Wichita, Kansas, earlier this month.
Richter scale is a standard classification system used to measure earthquake intensity.
The United States Geological Survey uses the scale from 1 to 4 with a maximum of 4.0, a minimum of 3.0 and a range of 1.0 to 5.0.
The epicentres of the two earthquakes in Wichita are estimated to have occurred about 5.2 kilometers apart.
The earthquake in Wichita struck about 6.2 miles from the Richter magnitude 4.1 quake that struck about 12 miles south in Kansas City, Missouri, on June 18, 2018.
The Richter 5.7 magnitude quake struck about 2.8 miles away from the Wichita epicenter about 6 miles from Richter’s epicenter, and the Richtters 5.1 magnitude quake is thought to have struck about 10 miles away.
The two earthquakes, along with the magnitude 3.9 quake in Wichita that struck on April 24, were the strongest earthquakes ever recorded in the US.
Richttering scale does not mean the earthquake was as strong as the magnitude 4 magnitude quake in Kansas.
That quake, which struck in August 2017, was larger in size than the Richters 5 magnitude quake.
But the magnitude scale does mean Richter has a smaller epicenter than other Richter scales such as the Richtlayer scale.
