@Glenda- Epicenter was about 6 miles north of Prague
I live near Tulsa and felt this shake my entire house. Very unusual in this area!
Woke me up.......thought I was dreaming.
I live in Tulsa and was woke up from it. I half asleep thought, "Oh we're having an earthquake. Oh, no we're not. We don't have earthquakes in Oklahoma." I then went right back to sleep. But we did.
The bed was swaying to and fro and I could hear stuff moving. Weird.
Tiff, that was me !
Check out the USGS website, five-ish earthquakes are not too uncommon. I used to live there and never felt one, but I sure did when I moved here to MD. Oklahoma has several fault lines that most people never really think about. Google Geological Provinces of Oklahoma Robert A Nothcutt. That or visit the Oklahoma Geological Survey. Their site looks like it is overloaded right now though.
We've had six so far... these are in GMT times.

I felt it down here in Baton Rouge, Louisiana! No, wait a minute, that was Big Al running from the a$$ whippin LSU gonna give them tonight! GEAUX TIGAHS!!!
Obnoxious LSU fans. Go comment on a sports board.
The obvious solution to this problem is more massive tax cuts for the super rich.
I hope everything was shaken, not stirred...
Dirk Nowitzki IS the best basketball player ever. Dallas Mavs are gonna win 3 more championships in a row suckas!!
I was woke up several times last night. I had fallen asleep on the couch+the window sill was rattling. Then another time the couch was moving. I thought I was crazy. I live in SWMissouri about 15 miles from the Oklahoma line.
Blame it on wall street and the 1%
This is a prelude to a massive quake that will split the U.S. down the middle. The government has known this was coming for decades but never warned the people for fear of panic. What is now the Mississippi River will become a new ocean separating the two new continents.
I think that was a movie, but they were able to stop it just north of New Orleans or something. You're thinking of the movie George.
