Update
Kristi Hanna from Del City, OK:
Was sitting on couch and about 2:01 am heard a loud boom and the wall of our back home by the couch and window shook for a second. Sounded more like a bomb at the time and I called the Del City Police Dept (non emergency number but couldn't get an answer so I called Del City Fire Dept and they said they thought this was probably an Earthquake).
Holly Hair from Hall Park area Norman, OK: Heard a rumbling sound while lightly sleeping... Wondered why a train was coming through at 2 am...then a sudden jolt and rattle. Felt like I was back in California ( I born there and lived there until I was 30). Definitely an earthquake!
Cori Coty from Shawnee, OK:
At 1:56am there was a good jolt with the bed shaking and walls rattled. Then I noticed a large gust of wind outside afterwards. It was only about 2 seconds. I am from Alaska and use to earthquakes so thought I would just share this small experience I had here on Oklahoma.
