That one felt bigger here in south OKC than yesterdays.
Just a few minutes ago.
We’re south of Norman—this one lasted for a good 30 seconds, maybe longer, and gave us a pretty strong shake.
Sure it wasn’t at Stillwater at the OSU KSU game?
I felt this one over here in Adair County. Was listening to news reports about last nights quake and the house started to shake and windows rattled.
Huge here in Moore. ... and long lasting.
I thought I had lost my mind. I’m in Fort Worth, and my house just shook about 6 minutes ago.
I’ve lived through many a quake in L.A. This was one hell of a quake, for OK.
Felt in Arlington, Tx! My first!
Kirk Herbstreit. Just mentioned as he was interviewed
FB friend of mine felt it and posted about it. She is in the airport on the way back to Alabama.
I’ll say it was a big one, I felt it here in leavenworth kansas, I was watching FR to find out where it came from.
“Were south of Normanthis one lasted for a good 30 seconds, maybe longer, and gave us a pretty strong shake.”
We live just north of Noble and felt the quake.
Just received the twitter alert, it was 5.8..I live in Southern Cali so I know how it is. Hope everyone is Ok
felt it in Norman - lasted about 30 seconds - pretty strong.
She was in Oklahoma City
Oh, Yeah! If this one is the same epicenter, it is MUCH stronger. I am 50 miles from Prague and this time the whole house and slab shook! (Last night’s was barely perciptible and only slightly rattled the bedroom window.)
Cool. Reminds me of my California days. I wuldn’t be surprised if this was a 5.5 or so. That would be bigger than the 5.2 in 1952 which is the largest recorded in Oklahoma.
Yeah, it was a strong one. I’d guess about 5.5 or so. My whole house was shifting back and forth for about 30 seconds. No damage, but I was expecting things to start coming off the walls at any moment. The 4.7 Saturday morning was the 2nd largest ever recorded in Oklahoma. I bet this one beats that.
One big jolt here in Altus
5.2 near Sparks and Prague.

I just felt the floor bounce under my feet here is SE Ohio.Not badly more like a heavy truck going by but no truck?
I just looked it up, there have been 3 earthquakes in OK, today. The most powerful being 5.3. That’s a good size quake.
I'm up here by Alliance. I felt my couch move. I thought it was a FedEx jet flying into Alliance, but it kept doing it. That's for sure the first time I've noticed one. Strange.
We are in south Norman. Several paintings fell down and the dining room light was swinging back and forth as the china cabinet rattled away. And afterward, I just knew the first reports would be on Freerepublic!
I’m in Cherokee County, near Tahlequah (southeast of Tulsa) and felt that one good. I am also a former Californian, and it got my attention. Kind of a low down rumbling thing. Didn’t last very long, and didn’t move anything around. Irritating, though. I moved to Oklahoma to get away from that sort of this.....LOL!
I felt it in NW Arkansas near Siloam Springs and my daughter felt it in Rogers, Ar.
It shook the house and I am on a strong foundation.
“I think you folks both felt the same thing. All these earthquakes lately aren’t a good sign, IMO.”
It is a good sign if you are expecting the Rapture.
Yea we just had one in Wichita Falls, TX.
I’m not an earthquake virgin anymore.
I shudder to think what this did to my (and countless DFWites’) already distressed house foundation.
5.8 in Oklahoma!
It was revised down to 5.2 but damn that is a pretty good sized quake. Ive lived through many quakes here in SoCal so I know how it feels when the earth starts shaking like that
My wife and I felt it. We live in Allen, just north of Plano and DFW.
Very tight clustering, interesting
I was just thinking that. As bad as the drought was this year, a quake is the last thing we need.
Oh yeah. I’m born and raised in San Diego. 5.2 - we feel those!
I have friends in Red Oak Texas south of Dallas who are saying they felt a good one. Reports from all over the Dallas area. We didn’t feel anything East of Dallas but the dog really freaked out about the time everyone was reporting it. I just thought she was being weird until I saw everyone reporting it and realized it was the same time.
I remember the Northridge quake..like it was yesterday, didnt have power for 2 days, when the power came back on, we had all the pay channels LOL..only lasted a day but hey it was fun while it lasted. Quakes in the middle of the night are always more scary
Yep, I posted right before you that we felt it up here in Kansas, about thirty minutes north of the border.
New Madrid seismic zone.
Also a friend in Little Rock said he felt something too.
