    Didn't feel it here in Keller, TX but my parrot fell of his perch and hit the bottom of his cage at about the same time of the quake and woke me up.

    This was not a very big earthquake.
    The most moving story here was the tale of the parrot, poor thing. I sincere hope that he wasn't hurt.
    What did he say?

    I used "sincere" as an adverb!
    EXCUSE: I was still almost asleep.
    I apologize from the depths of my condemned-to-Hell soul.

    The "BIG ONE" is slowly moving into the midwest.

    It shook my house for 20 seconds and I am 2 hours away from Prague-the epicenter. We are all kinds of freaked out-we Oklahomans can handle tornadoes no problem, but the West coast can keep the earthquakes!

    4.7 is noticeable enough to be alarming when you're not used to it. Have a heart, folks.

    Although, as usual, my first reaction is, "Dangit, I missed it!" This after having had a couple 7s in the last few years. Yes, I'm crazy... I moved to CA 15 years ago and have enjoyed all but one earthquake so far.

    My coworkers and I felt the ground move in Wichita, Kansas. It was a side to side type motion and lasted about 20 seconds here also.

    I live just east of Tulsa and it was strong enough the move pictures on the walls and some things in the garage fell. It felt like a train was coming through my garage. Definitely scared me. Lasted a good 1 minute. We felt a small aftershock about 15 minutes later but it was only small shaking of glass in the cabinets.
