View Full Version : Edmond Earthquake January 11, 2010?

Brand new to the post, here goes... As I was cleaning up my garage earlier today (north of Waterloo in Edmond), I felt & heard the ground rumble (four to five episodes on right after another). I stopped to process what I was witnessing/feeling and it felt almost like short underground explosive burst that were off in the distance. Was this possibly a tremor that I felt from the Jones Earthquake that occured a couple of days ago? I have never witnessed or felt anything like this before and have no reference of what a tremor or minor quake feels like. What say others in the area?

A decade ago, I was at my grandma's in Lawton. I felt the ground tremble slightly as you describe. Being so close to Ft. Sill, I had initially thought it was just mortor fire, but it felt different from that. Hard to explain the way it felt other then the concrete slab under my feet literally shook. And sure enough, the 10 o'clock news reported it was an earthquake.

I wouldn't be surprised if what you felt was indeed a quake.

Nothing reported today.

We do have an earthquake thread in Current Events where one of us normally posts the info after each one:

Here is the map which shows earthquakes over the last week:
