Is there a narration which mentions that an earthquake struck during the time of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu)?
Yes. Imam Abu Bakr Ibn Abi Shaybah has recorded -with a reliable chain- that an earthquake occurred during the time of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ‘anhu).
(Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaybah, Hadith: 8421, Kitabul Fitan of Nu’aym ibn Hammad, Hadith: 1731 and As Sunanul Kubra of Imam Bayhaqi, vol. 3 pg. 342. Also see: Al Istidhkar, vol. 2 pg. 334)
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
