We felt that one up here in the Ohio valley. We had to go inspect all the overland belt structures, vent fans, and extra underground inspections that day. No damage was found. I felt a slight rumble that day lasting maybe a whole second.

An earthquake is something I never want to experience. Especially in my line of work....i remember the big one when I was a kid in California. The one that collapsed the double decker bridge trapping all those people in their cars. I had nightmares after seeing the news.

Had a moderate one here about 5 years ago, centered in Virginia but knocked a bunch of stuff off shelves and such here. Stay safe!


We felt that one down here in North Carolina. Made the vertical blinds move pretty good and rumbled the offices at work. Then about five seconds later everyone's cell phones started going off with wives calling. I felt one in SC as a little kid growing up but don't remember much about it. It is a bit unnerving to have the earth move under you.

Glad to know no one is hurt.

Have had ONE in Indiana, way back, shook me enough to wake me up and had to look around and see WHAT blew-up!  Only quake experience for me. We have Lime stone Quarry down from me and they blast all the time. Get a little rumble/shake from them, on regular basis.  Most local houses have cracks in walls and other little things they say from that. I have some in my place and had to cover, can't seem to keep closed other ways.  We're all gonna die in a BIG ONE someday maybe???  They say that one park outwest with geysers is gonna have a big one under it and let go someday and be real bad!   "What? Me, worry?"

The 2011 quake was very noticeable here, shook the ground, had stuff coming off shelves in some places, and loud rumbling. Didn't last long but created a stir. Was similar to the ones I felt in Valejo, and Stckton.

Could be Cat! They've been sucking oil and gas out of the ground for a long time down here!

Glad to hear you are OK Kenny. I read this earlier today about wastewater disposal and earthquakes in your area. I'll post the link to the article but don't know how long it will remain active.   http://www.msn.com/e...gWx?li=BBnb7Kz 

 

Here is a part of the article:

 

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission, which since 2013 has asked wastewater-well owners to reduce disposal volumes in parts of the state, directed about 35 wells within an approximately 500-square-mile area around the epicenter to shut down within seven to 10 days because of previous connections between the injection of wastewater and earthquakes.

"All of our actions have been based on the link that researchers have drawn between the Arbuckle disposal well operations and earthquakes in Oklahoma," spokesman Matt Skinner said Saturday. "We're trying to do this as quickly as possible, but we have to follow the recommendations of the seismologists, who tell us everything going off at once can cause an (earthquake)."

My sister/brother in law are in Tulsa and they live in a brick house. They have a inch wide crack in the brick from the roof to the ground and they said the bricks are "loose" in the wall. I have told them to get earth quake insurance but they never have, I told her again to get some and she said she will look into it.

Lots of locals here felt it. 

Some asked me if I felt anything.

Told them I was driving on a Missouri road at the time.  How could I possibly tell? :wallbanging:

May be to late.
Existing damage is a good reason for a company to refuse to cover.
