I've been through so many of these quakes now that I barely noticed this one... not until my mother called asking about it.

Curious though... you felt it 90 miles away?

It wasn't a very big quake, magnitude-wise. It's... a bit concerning that you felt it that far off.

There are daily earthquakes Oklahoma. Some have attributed it to fracking.

2 hours ago a 3.5 aand 5 hours ago a 3.2. This happens every day, usually more per day.

You will feel it more if it is closer to the surface. That was 5 km underground, that is considered near the surface. The one previous to that today was 3 km underground.

Correct the less deeper, the more effect. My dogs have turned out to be great forecasters ...
they seem to sence them before they hit

I'm well aware, but 90 miles away for that magnitude is rather unusual.

Incidentally, I was woken this morning by a magnitude 4.3 in Edmond, Oklahoma. There have been a bunch of aftershocks and, due to the close proximity (this appears to be one of the larger ones close to a whole lot of people), there was a substantial amount of damage; one chimney has been reported as shaking loose from the a house and falling.

not unusual. we are in a geological sound box -like a guitar, violin or banjo. a little vibration goes a long way here. That is why when we do have a big one there is wide spread devastation and little ones can be felt several states away. Think new madrid.

The USGS has a shake map and a "did you feel it?" report app. when we get one you can look at that map and see seismic station reports and self reported shaking at several scales of resolution. you can see that the felt shaking and seismic verification can go all the way across multiple states away and at the same time can entirely skip counties and states along the way.

Another day, another early morning 4.2 in Edmond...

I don't really need another alarm clock, Earth.
