scrosnoe   Felt tremor in Bartlesville apparently 5.2 with epicenter in Sparks Oklahoma, ceiling shook felt earth move but no power loss all still now
SvrWxChaser   #BREAKING: USGS Confirms a 5.2 #earthquake struck near Oklahoma City, OK. MORE INFO: on.doi.gov/sXNWn3 Lasted 90 seconds in Tulsa.
TPierce (via email) Was setting at my computer at 10:54 when the desk started to shake and the monitor began to “walk” of the edge. My first thought was a plane low  enough to cause that much vibration,and I was expecting the house to be hit. Not until after did I realiize what had happened. It is a terrifying expreience when the you dont know what it is.
