November 5, 2011

OKLAHOMA CITY — Authorities say three earthquakes that have shaken much of central Oklahoma could be felt as far away as Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas.

The U.S. Geological Survey says on its website early Saturday morning that a 4.7 magnitude earthquake struck at 2:12 a.m., with an epicenter about six miles north of Prague in southern Lincoln County. That's about 50 miles east of Oklahoma City.

A 3.4 magnitude aftershock was reported at 2:27 a.m. from the same location.

The survey says a 2.7 magnitude quake also was recorded at 2:44 a.m.

Lincoln County sheriff officials say there have been no reports of injuries but several people have reported items falling off walls.

Oklahoma City police officials say they have received several 911 calls, but have no reports of injuries or damage.

Some more info in the link above. FTA following the link states the fault was the "Wilzetta fault also known as the Seminole uplift"

Page above will be updated with more info as its available.

Shake, rattle and roll! Likely will be some aftershocks since this was a 5.2.

Wonder how the Madrid Fault is doing what with the unusual activity in AR, OK and the East Coast area.

That is a first for me. I heard a couple of pops or the sound of something moving and felt two shakes. My screen shook a little later.

Near Pinckney, also. Scared the pets, that's for sure! Spent many years in seismically active areas, but never expected to feel it here! Tornadoes will at least announce their presence!

We felt it in southwest Lawrence, near Bishop Seabury school. It initially felt like someone bumped my chair, then things began to shake. I could actually see my computer monitor move.

No matter what you say, I know now I'm not nuts. First time was Hawaii in 1994, when I was living on the 30th floor. Bizarre.

Our whole house rumbled for what seemed like 30 seconds. Maybe at 11:55 or so? Totally freaked me out. We're near Pinckney.

Funky, I thought my dog was scratching her ear and leaning against my desk because it was shaking. I looked over and no dog, weird.

Here too, fairly long one if the epicenter is in Oklahoma again. My neighbor was up early this morning & said she felt it. Didn't really believe her, have to apologize to her tomorrow.

Not that we needed a reason to dump on the senior senator from Oklahoma but! The reason Oklahoma is drying up and burning is no doubt due to the purgatory imposed on Christian whacko James Inhofe. Too much greasing his palms from the petroleum industry for this nut to understand climate change. This guy should have a hardshelled preacher and not a representative of his constituents. Wonder if his I.Q. is recordable.

Darn, it wasn't grand enough swallow up "The Denier" Jim Inhoffe, a man that evolution skipped a beat on. Maybe next time around. Two opposing thumbs for another chance anyway.
