I didn't feel or hear it, must have been too busy watching Bedlam on TV. Other people in Stillwater felt it, though. It was 4.5 M, with a 2.8 M for the first after shock.

I didn't note the time, but earlier when my recliner shook, the thought went through my mind it was an earthquake.

If I lived in the OKC area and had to spend much time in a brick and mortar structure, I'd be a mite worried.

I experienced one of the Joshua Tree, aftershocks at Palm Springs. The shaking was reminiscent of riding a train cross country -- except I was in a house. It lasted about 10 minutes; Luckily nothing was broken.

10 minutes!? Don't you mean 10 seconds?

Do you live in a high rise building? That would shake much longer after the actual tremblor has quit. Where approximately do you live?

My experience of growing up and living in socal until a few years ago has taught me that one thing quakes do is destroy your sense of time. The seconds turn into hours with a really big quake. The Chatsworth quake was a quarter mile from my cousins house, and he said he didn't think they could clear the house that fast, but it seemed real slow. I lived counties away, but was at the computer with the heavy monitor in front of me, couldn't get under anything but just hung onto the monitor so it didn't fall and hunkered down.

I learned back there that you NEVER put up tall things like bookshelves without attaching it to the wall through a solid beam. Never put things on the wall above where you sleep that can fall on you. Good thing to remember.

As someone who's grown up waiting for the 'big one', to hear people here wondering when it will hit. Isn't the San Andreas a few states away? We lived in the area near where its most likely to go.

And no, uis Califonian expats did not bring them. Maybe they followed?

I was in Palm Springs visiting family. It started slow like a train and intensified before it dissipated. .
