Unlike the candy that inspired it, the Reese's doughnut is more peanut butter than chocolate, so it's not overwhelmingly sweet. It's not the first time the doughnut company has partnered with another brand to create a treat with a twist.

The natural disaster followed four other quakes with magnitudes from 3.0 to 3.5 in the area since Tuesday.

The Induced Seismicity Department at the Oklahoma Corporation Commission (OCC) and the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS) are investigating the latest natural disaster activity in the Edmond area.

The wells lie within a 10-mile radius of the seismic activity and target the sponge-like Arbuckle formation. The commission also said that no disposal wells are in the area but a known fault is in the vicinity. "There are no Arbuckle disposal wells at or very close to the location". The quake was the sharpest of six tremors detected in the Edmond area over a 24 hour period.

Power outages were reported in Edmond, city officials said on Twitter. The OCC said Edmond is located within the AOI.
