3.4?

It’s a wonder anyone felt it.

Building shook. Son came running out of his office asking if I heard it. Dog was barking at the bathroom door where husband had entered a few moments before the shake. Son and I ran in the bathroom to see if husband was okay. Thoroughly ticked off husband who thought we were making fun of him for gaining weight. It didn’t help that son asked if he had farted.

Now I read we really DID have an earthquake. LOL

In California when they have a big earthquake everyone calls into the police to let them know.

Not so much anymore. Now we jump to USGS' Did You Feel It? site and log what we felt. It generates some pretty cool shaking maps as a result.

Note. Not to be confused with "Oooh, baby, did you feel it too?"

3.4 is not an earthquake.

Rain isn’t an excuse for bedlam on the freeways and school closures, either.

It’s just a matter of familiarity.

It is in this part of Texas...we don’t get them around here like this. Up in Oklahoma sure....but it’s odd to get one in the mid-3’s in Dallas proper.

Felt nothing here in Flower Mound, but heard a odd slow rumble. I asked the wife if she heard thunder, been raining all day, but she wasn’t sure because no lightning.

The Twin Towers collapses gave Richter readings of 2.1 to 2.3, which gives a fair measure of the power of earthquake magnitudes depending on their depths.

For those who felt two, USGS site now appears to reflect that.

I live in Grapevine, 4 miles due West of the DFW airport, and I felt it! ....I’m about 30 driving miles West of Dallas, so I doubt it happened in Dallas.

News media talking heads are idiots and don’t realize that the DFW Metro area includes at least 5 counties. They tend to call anything happening to be in Dallas.

I’m in north Grand Prairie, right on the southern border of Irving along I-30, and we didn’t feel a thing. Interesting that the enviros are already rushing to blame fracking and claming there have never been earth tremors in Dallas County before, even though there’s always been a faultline through North Irving/Las Colinas. Half the McMansions up there have chronic foundation problems because of it.

Anything under 4.0 should not be reported.

I’m in North Dallas and I felt it. First I thought it felt like a quake but figured it must have been a really strong gust of wind as I heard the walls and roof and everything kinda creak at once. Lasted about a second.

There were two late last night in the Dallas area.....a 3.4 and a 3.1.

Depends on the geography and depth.

A 3.4 might be felt strongly over a large area, or barely felt at all even at the epicenter.

On bedrock, even a 3 might be perceived as strong and be felt over a wide area.
