At about 7:00 am central we felt the house shake, pictures on the wall moved. Checking the Internet, it looks as if the quake was centered around Stillwater to Ponca City OK.

Anyone else feel it? Mike in NW Arkansas? Mike B. In Oklahoma City? Steve J.?

We live 5 miles north of Valley, NE and we felt it too. The bed was shaking, no not from that, and the window blinds were moving around. My wife said it was the wind, but there was no wind, dead calm. Local radio station had a bunch of calls reporting it too.

I was trying to sleep in this morning but I might have felt it here in Kansas City.

It was a 5.6 intensity. Here in Kansas City just some slight back and forth movement along with a very low frequency rumble. I checked Google, and California still appears to be on the map.

As usually the case, 'Nuthin' up here, unless you were to reference a morning trip to the bathroom...:-)
(I don't envy youse guys when the ground starts moving beneath me! Experienced that once in Los Angeles about 20 floors up, and was pleased to return to God's country!)

Almost all my family (Grandparents aunts, uncles, cousins, ect) are from the Stillwater area of Oklahoma. They live at Yale Ok. about 20 miles from Stillwater. My wife said it has been all over our family's Facebook accounts this morning. No one from our family has mentioned anything about damage yet.

Steve Jelf, you OK? Seems you might be one of the nearest to it.

Yep here too, but if you never felt one you might not have noticed it,

Steve probably didn't feel it...he's frustrated with his engine "popping" - he just posted today at 11:10

It's all that corn in the gas nowadays--they got a batch of popcorn oil. . . .

It was about 7:01 AM and lasted about a minute. Usually I sleep through them or don't notice them and read about them later in the paper, but this one was strong enough to actually shake the building. Maybe there was some damage around Pawnee, but 5.6 isn't big enough to do widespread damage.

Hi, Steve. Real glad you're okay. I contacted a friend down in Stillwater and he's okay too, except that he and the dog were scared half to death. Bob

I'm here in OKC. It was quite a shaker! Definitely the biggest quake I've felt the entire time I've lived here.

I felt it here in St. Peters MO. We are thirty miles west of St. Louis.

Hells bells that ain't no shaker. You want to feel a shaker just be around when my wife puts her foot down! Not only does the ground shake but so do I and half of the neighborhood! :-)

I was always amused that my aunt in Ponca City said she'd never live in California because of the quakes. She felt perfectly safe here in Tornado Alley. I'll take a little shaking over a tornado any day. :-)

Wife was still in bed, said she had never felt the earth shake before in bed.

Wait a minute..........

Was in the shop, shook stuff off the shelves, transmission drums and small parts. Went out side and leaned into the building and it was a rocking. Shake and bake. Lol.

My cousin just outside Omaha felt it.
I was living in Elkhorn Nebraska when the 71 Sylmar hit. I missed the 94 Northridge quake by a week. I have only experienced the 52 tehachapi quake which I barely remember. I hear it is a strange sensation.

It was so slight I wasn't sure, but suspected it was a quake. Holly was still in bed but awake. She saw pictures on the wall sway slightly.

I was in the basement at the time. I've felt a small one or two in the past. It was always like, "what was that?" This time, there was no doubt! I was thinking how bad it was being in a basement as I was watching stuff swinging back and forth.

In 1971 I was in Lomita, about fifty miles from Sylmar, and that one woke me up. It was a 6.5 or 6.7, about ten times stronger than this morning's little shake.

Galen Drake told me about the 1933 quake in Long Beach, where he was working at KFOX. The jail was destroyed, so a rope line was set up around Lincoln Park and the prisoners camped inside the rope.

Didn't feel anything here at Lake Ozark. Friends in St.Louis did and in KC.

My wife and I both felt/heard it here in NWA. Nothing serious here, but we both thought it must have been a quake. A few minutes later it was on the news. Our daughter in Tulsa said it shook her house noticeably.

Fracking in action.

Can you say plate tectonics?.......sure you can! :-)

Plate tectonics go on much deeper then any sub surface actions that the hand of man has anything to do with.

-Jay-
It just seems strange for the 'higher incidence' of earthquakes in the fracking area. Geologic studies have now caused orders to 'shut down' 37 wells (I believe) in that quake-prone area.
A different geologic cause than in CA.

I think we've had 3 or 4 shakers today but of course no one has felt them. Some say the BIG ONE is coming next? Hope everyone was OK
No storm celler here at my house here at the beach.

A past member of the Tin Lizzies of Albuquerque told me he was in the band room at Manuel Arts High in LA when the 33 Long Beach quake occurred.
He purchased his nice 26 Fordor from a used car dealer in Albuquerque in the fifties. His widow is about to turn 100 and still responds to our club emails.
