Location Uncertainty: 
3.0 mb_lg
± 0.06
35.869°N, 97.302°W--
5.0 km
± 2.0 km
Number of Phase Applied1

Minimum Distance2
15.9 km (0.14°)

Travel Time Residual3
0.34 sec

Azimuthal Gap4

1Number of phase Applied: 
In determining location of hypocenter, applied number of observations on P waves and S waves. The greater the more accurate prediction of EQ.

2Minimum Distance:
 Horizontal distance of nearest Station measured in Km from epicenter. The smaller the more accuracy in prediction of depth of EQ.

3Travel Time Residual:
 A way of measurement of fit of arrival time observed to arrival time predicted for particular location. The smaller the better fit of data.

4Azimuthal Gap: 
Expressed in degree; the smaller the smaller the error in horizontal positioning of EQ. Large uncertainty is considered when exceeds 180° (both depth and location)
