Never been in an earthquake before……….

The LSU game had just ended when the whole house started rattling around 10:55pm......

It lasted for almost a minute……………..

Strange times we live in……..

Curious to see if it was an aftershock from the Oklahoma quake from yesterday...........

My first one as well and I've been here about 18 years

I'm about 30 minutes north of the red river
apparently it was felt all the way from joplin, mo (or farther north) as far south as dallas, tx

I felt it in Fort Worth, Texas. I thought I was going crazy because the chair I was sitting in was shaking, but when I looked up and saw my cat's face I knew it wasn't just me.

I've never been through an earthquake before, so that was a really weird feeling.

Alrright ! The question here imo is, what kind of natural occurance could be causing this rather unusual occurance in the heartland? Right in the middle of the continent ?

Hope everyone's good.

I was sitting with my legs up on a stand when I felt a gentle swaying motion not unlike being on a ship in semi-choppy water. I even got nauseous. To be honest I thought at first it had more to do with the geomagnetic field by remembered in passing about some of the EQ activity in Oklahoma so made note of the time. I'm 250miles from the epicenter and from what I remember of the travel times for the waves I have to conclude I felt some of the waves from this EQ.

Looking at the USGS it is rather amazing how far some of those reports are. There is one in Lawrence, Kansas, and it is an intensity of III on their scale, which is rather fantastic given the distance and the relative yawn of the EQ itself. The fact that this is in Oklahoma is about all that makes this interesting due to the supposed geophysical stability of the region.
