Saturday Nov. 5th: Clearly everyone just felt another earthquake at ~10:53pm for about a minute just as Channel 8 TV was airing a report on the one earlier this morning (after the OSU football game had ended). -- Ted 10:56pm Saturday 11/5/2011 (Early report says this one more like 5.6 magnitude which would be largest ever in Oklahoma? -- Ted 11:30pm Sat) -- KTUL Channel 8 coverage 11/5/2011 -- USGS Info on 5.6 quake at 10:53 Nov. 5th
I suspect each of us in Collinsville may have felt or heard things a bit differently but for me (in an old two story house on a brick foundation) it was more of a steady gentle vibration and low dull rumbling sound. There was no real shaking of anything on the wall or shelfs that I noticed. If your Collinsville earthquake experience was significantly different let me know. Facebook lit up immediately with reactions from this shared experience but more shock (and some fear) for a mostly first time experience than a quantifible event description. -- Ted Wright 1am Sunday
Reports from many states that felt it. USGS survey (click on "Responses" to see list by zip code) says we were 134 kilometers (~83 miles) away from epicenter. -- Ted noon Sunday -- Interesting they felt it in Collinsville, Illinois also.
(Sunday Channel 6 Report 11/6/2011)
I felt this (4.7 earthquake) here in Collinsville about 2:15am Saturday just minutes after I got in bed. -- Ted --> Tulsa World 11/5/2011
(Based on Facebook reports lots of Collinsville folks and others statewide felt it unless they slept thru it)
