Oklahoma's largest quake in decades buckles highway; rattles residents


November 06, 2011|By the CNN Wire Staff
Central Oklahoma continued to experience dozens of aftershocks Sunday, nearly 24 hours since the state's strongest earthquake since 1952 was felt throughout the region.
More than ten aftershocks measuring at east 3.0 magnitude were reported Sunday, in the hours after a 5.6-magnitude earthquake took residents by surprise Saturday night. The temblor rattled homes and structures, causing belongings to scatter in houses and sending strident, booming sounds through the area.

This is what was reported on CNN but on Saturday night I had already gone to bed and was dead asleep when the bed started jumping all over the floor.  I was so confused and had a heck of a time getting my wits about me.  Ron came in the room and said. "Don't worry, it's just an earthquake".  I said, well I hope California is getting out tornadoes then.  Us Okie's aren't used to this kind of commotion.  Not the kind under your feet.......we're used to the kind that blow down the street and we just get out of the way!

I was immediately worried about Mike.  Because last year's earthquake is what set of his psychotic break.  He called almost immediately after the quake.  We talked to him awhile and then decided to just go get him and bring him to the house to be sure he was OK.  All seems to be going well.

So how's it shakin where you are?

I was wondering how much of it you felt. Mercy, Nature really has her panties in a bunch lately. It is hard to know what to expect anymore.
So glad you got Mike with you and can make him feel safe.
