    So I haven't seen anything on this yet but at about 5 min till 11 last night im awoken to my apt rattling and look over my remotes are shuffling across the table. I jump up and run outside to see if its a tornado or what? (Since May 22ndneed we had an EF5 tornado locally ) and then I realize its no storm its an earthquake! WTF we don't have this stuff around here! Well they apparently had several yesterday a couple hundred miles away near Oklahoma City. Kinda freaky when your not expecting it.

    Added extra awesomeness to its original awesomeness.
    We felt it too. Lived in Texas my whole life never had this problem until within the last 5 years or so, we have had a dozen that I can recall (I know this is nothing for Californians, but new to us). Same with snow, we have had it before, but not like the last few years.

    It was actually a 5.6 I think? The strongest quake they've seen since 1952.

    CNN Article

    Over 30 aftershocks!

    Maybe you are right. The USGS reported a 1.5 in Missouri on the 4th

    7.1 was my biggest quake. And proud that I survived it. :)
