Fig. 1 A Demonstration of tectonic forces at work in Oklahoma
If anyone’s in Oklahoma (unlikely), that shaking you felt a little while ago was a 5.6 magnitude earthquake, centered in Lincoln County. Congrats, Oklahoma, you had an earthquake, I guess you’re cool now.
The quake was reportedly felt as far north as Grove and as far south as north Texas. “The picture by the TV fell off the wall and we jumped up because we thought somebody had hit the house,” Noeh Morales said.
“It was like a roaring noise. I’ve never one that bad over here,” he said. Morales said he was asleep at his home near SW 69 and Pennsylvania Avenue. “It woke me out of a dead sleep. I felt the whole house shaking. I jumped and ran outside to see what was going on,” he said.
