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.

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.

We live just north of Noble and felt the quake.

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.

Very interesting.

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.

I think you folks both felt the same thing. All these earthquakes lately aren't a good sign, IMO.

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

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.

Felt in Arlington, Tx! My first!

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.

It is a good sign if you are expecting the Rapture.

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

I was just thinking that. As bad as the drought was this year, a quake is the last thing we need.

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.
