While some may think it was Arrowhead Stadium where the Chiefs were playing the Titans today that caused the earth to tremble, it was actually a good-size earthquake in southern Kansas.
The U.S. Geological Survey said a magnitude 4.5 earthquake struck about 2 miles (3 kilometers) southwest of Hutchinson shortly after 1 p.m. The service had initially reported that it was a magnitude 4.4 earthquake, but later upgraded it. No damage was immediately reported.
The earthquake happened near where several others have happened before in Reno County, The Hutchinson News reported.

KSN viewers reported feeling the earthquake in Salina, Lucas, Wichita, Park City, Hays and Andover. The U.S. Geological Service also reported two separate 2.4 magnitude earthquakes felt in neighboring Oklahoma.
Later, KSN reported the 4.4 magnitude earthquake was upgraded to a 4.5 temblor.
