    We were trying to describe the sounds and the closest we could come up was those old movie effects with a cattle stampede or the herds of buffalo tearing across the plains...a rolling continuous rumble.

    They reported at 11:20 it was upgraded to a 5.6.......

    I'm sure they'll revise it again before it's put to rest.

    I thought of the buffalo herd night scene from Dances With Wolves.

    I wonder if the 5.6 is considered to be an aftershock of the first one early today. It's very unusual for an aftershock to be larger than the original event.

    I lived in San Francisco for nearly a decade, in 100 year-old Victorians, and in homes built on sand. That was the most powerful and most sustained earthquake I have been through and/or felt.

    Maybe this morning was pre-shocks? Maybe the 5.6 is a pre-shock?!

    I keep telling you all they have to do is return our Seattle Supersonics and I'll lift the curse.

    I didn't think it was ever going to stop. The house was rattling and felt like it was slung, twice - like a ripple went through. I didn't care for it.

    Felt it strong in Surrey Hills (far NW OKC). House rattled for a good 45 seconds. Exciting but scary.

    Hey, KOCO is talking on TV right now. The 5.2 wasn't revised to 5.6? They were saying the 5.6 around 11:50pm, so that mean we still have the 5.2 around 10:30pm. Right????

    There was the only one quake according to the US Geological Survey. They're still saying 5.6.

    Okay, so the 5.6 lil after 10:30pm. How strong was the 11:50pm? KOCO was saying 5.6 happened at 11:50pm? Can you clear that up, please.

    There's nothing to clear up. There was only one which is being called a 5.6. Nothing happened at 11:50PM.

    It was 10:53 pm...... 11:50 is probably EST ?

    Go look at the USGS link above, it will tell you.
