5.2 near Sparks, OK.

Apparently, there were several since early morning, but I didn't feel them.

This one, I felt. Scary, though I'm sure there's no damage.

And it's late enough I don't want to call around and wake people up to see if they felt it. :lol:

The one I felt was right at 10:55 CDT.

I heard the window blinds rattling, and heard what sounded like a big gust of wind outside. Then it felt like someone was pushing and pulling on the back of the couch. My hanging basket in the corner was swaying pretty good. :shock:

I'm 20 miles west of Topeka Kansas in the Flint Hills, and I felt it. I thought the cat was moving my recliner. It went on for several minutes while I was swatting at the stupid cat, and my Wife said a cat was making her couch move too. It all made sense when we heard an hour later that we had an earthquake.

I'm West of Topeka, but only a few miles into the Flint Hills.
I'm surprised I even felt it at all since my house sits on top soil that's over 40' deep.

There have been 400 aftershocks in Virginia since the one a few months ago.

Wow!!

I've lived here all my life, never felt one before Saturday. I hope it won't be a frequent thing. lol

I always tell my California friends that you can hide from a tornado. No hiding from earthquakes, floods, wildfires, etc.
