Any UGers feel these? I didn't feel the one last night, but about 5-10 minutes ago my house was shaking. We aren't exactly earthquake prone so it is kind of a shock. I'm curious how far away people felt them, I am in Kansas and I definately felt this one

These aren't really anything to people who have been to California or other seismically active areas I imagine (I think the one last night was 4.8, I assume what I just felt was an aftershock possibly), but since anyone living in this area for much of their life is likely to never experience one I'd like to hear people's thoughts on it.

We had an earthquake once, a chimney fell off a house in Birmingham. It's the worst natural disaster Britain has had.

I got a buddy in the Marine Corps who just posted about feeling an earthquake on Facebook.

It was definately felt in southern Kansas as well. Is it a new earthquake or an aftershock from the one last night?

Edit: I finally found a news article about this, apparently this one that just happened was very shallow, only 3.1 miles deep.

I dunno, I think it was a whole new earthquake.

"We are now showing there has been a 5.2 Earthquake about 30 miles East of OK City. We are getting reports off it being felt in Dallas, Lubbock and Withita falls. This was a very strong quake and there may be damage in OK city." -news stations facebook page

I just read this comment on one of the statuses:

"HE is coming!"

My sister lives 45 miles from the epicenter and she said it lasted like a minute. Some people up where I am (Columbia MO) said they felt it too but I didn't feel shit

There was one I felt at home around 2 AM, and one just now in my dorm room.

So much for the Bible belt. First we get tornadoes, now earthquakes. If there's a God, they clearly don't like us.

^ I just had that same thought. Tornadoes are hard as hell to predict ahead of time and now we have earthquakes too
Quote by bradulator

Not too surprising, they usually climb up for awhile. I remember watching the Japan earthquake happening in real time, it was originally pegged at 7.9 I believe and they adjusted it over time to 9.0 eventually.

Here's a map showing where it happened for those interested: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Maps/US10/32.42.-100.-90.php

I'll be in Midwest City this weekend. If an earthquake collapses the building I'm in and I die, I'll be pissed.

The county where the epicenter is located is reporting "significant damage"

Also if this 5.6 sticks it will be the strongest on record for the state.

I'm like 60-70 miles from the epicentre. Shit was trippy as balls, man, especially since we were playing Battlefield 3 with happytimeharry who, a minute later up in Kansas, was like "holy shit I'm getting the earthquake now!"

Probably the most interesting thing to happen in Oklahoma for centuries. This is probably all anyone living there will hear about for the next three months.

I felt it up in Kansas, as well. Lawrence right here. It was pretty noticeable. My whole room was shaking for a good 10 seconds.

Man that was hilarious. You were like, "Dude there was just an earthquake." Then I was all wishing I could experience one. Literally seconds after I finished that sentence my place started rumbling.

It's just different. People who aren't from here freak the **** out over tornadoes, but the locals don't really care. We're not used to the ground shaking is all.

But I've already seen multiple Facebook posts about Jesus returning. Great.

i think we need to rename these recent geoogical events by intensity. Japan had an earthquake (buildings fell down, massive tsunami, people dead). What we are experiencing should be called an earth jiggle.

Quote by FacebookDerp
Earthquake related status.

All the rest were during the actual quake and amounted to "EARTHQUAKE WAT!" My friends > yours.

OT: I live in Oklahoma City, and I promise you, it was no big deal whatsoever. It lasted about 2 minutes and wasn't powerful. Everything you hear about it being scary, terrifying, destructive, etc. is bullshit. No big deal.

I think it was cool, especially since it wasn't a big deal. First earthquake many people from around here have felt in their entire lives.

And I saw that picture in the news, first thing I thought was that Needs a different font color though, red isn't as easy to read.

Huh, that's odd. Might have been because of what you were doing at the time. It didn't last very long at all. I know my brother was at a party here in Lawrence and I asked him if he felt it. He wasn't even aware there was one until I told him.

A spire fell off the roof of a building at St. gregory's university, which is east of okc. Only real damage I've heard of though

Yeah, I mean it was cool, but there were people all scared and freaking out about it (not on here) and they need to stop.
