I doubt if it will turn up on USGS. I think they only look at 4.0+ that far from 'home'
You might get some data on the NZ service. The link is in the thread.
The inital movement shows that the earth moves toward the epicenter AND to the southeast. Therefore the earthquake was SE of Leonard. Most of South America is E of North America. The Colombian Andes are SE of Oklahoma.
It might seem that if the earth's surface in Oklahoma moved up and down four millimeters, that buildings would be damaged. There would be damage if the movement was rapid. However, the movement was like slowly lifting the earth over a minute or so, then lowering it as slowly. Such slow motion will not effect anything but the detection sensor of a very broadband seismometer.
