RE: There was another earthquake??

Didn't feel it at all. My nephew in Florida heard about it, and asked me if I felt it. Hmmm

so, I looked, and here is what I found:

OKLAHOMA CITY -

People across the Oklahoma City metro began posting messages to Facebook and Twitter after feeling an earthquake Wednesday afternoon, the second quake in just eight hours.

The shaking began just before 2 p.m. and lasted only a few seconds. While the U.S. Geological Survey said the earthquake had a magnitude of 3.5, the Oklahoma Geological Survey ranked it higher, with a magnitude of 4.0

It was centered two miles southwest of Nicoma Park, and 11 miles east of Oklahoma City. According to the latitude and longitude coordinates from the Oklahoma Geological Survey, the epicenter was in a neighborhood between Post and Westminster to the west and east, and N.E. 10th Street and Reno to the north and south.

News 9 received several messages on Facebook when the quake hit.

"Felt it," wrote Theresa Vaughn. "Thought it might be wind buffeting the building, but it continued [too] long for that. Glad to know I wasn't hallucinating!"

Maria Couch felt it at her home in Edmond. "I was on the couch and it started vibrating, then I look over and my water bottle on the coffee table was shaking," she wrote.

There are a few reports of minor damage, but no injuries.

A 2.5 magnitude earthquake struck Wednesday morning at 6:30 a.m. It was centered three miles southeast of Choctaw.

And I decided to live here and not California, because of earthquakes!

It was an excellent jolt here in Midwest City. Thought an airplane had hit the building. Swaying pictures, the works.
Odd thing: My daughter, 12 miles away, felt nothing.

I didn't feel anything at 63rd and Broadway, but I had friends in Edmond that did.
