Any body feel the two today that occurred at 12;30.
29th and Sunnylane and shook pretty good, but what amazes me is the boom sound that accompanies them

The second was not as big as the first and occured about 5 minutes after the first.

I have checked the USGS and nothing yet to report there as to size or location.

They're on usgs.com now:

Map Centered at 35N, 98W (http://earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsus/Maps/US2/34.36.-99.-97.php)

Lot of movement around that side of town this year. Hope there aren't any wells cavin' in. : )

Redskin 70, you should have felt and heard the one we had in San Francisco ... 89 Loma Prieta 7.1

I think I had post traumatic stress syndrome after that thing hit.

Three so far in the Mid Del area this afternoon.

My wife has texted me for each of them.

It feels like I'm living in Bakersfield again. :smile:

Hearing us talk about these earthquakes is about like Filipinos freaking out over an F1 tornado.

Hope everyone in Del City is okay.

I happened to be home for lunch and felt them as well.

Any opinions or thoughts about what kind of damage these small quakes can do to the foundation/structure of homes?

I know nothing about home building/structure but it seems that one too many could do some permanent damage.
