Well, who says Oklahoma can't have an earthquake?
We had two major earthquakes on Saturday. One happened around 2am which I totally slept through. About the only thing waking me up these days is Travis. Still.
David and Timothy were up watching a movie and they felt it. It was a 4. something.
Then, around 10:30 that evening I heard the windows rattle and thought, "That's a really strong wind!" But it didn't stop, it just kept getting louder and the floor and walls shook. It lasted about 30 seconds I think. I did feel one really small aftershock just a few minutes later.
Thankfully, no one was hurt and no damage was done that we can tell. It was the largest earthquake on record here and I believe they determined it was a 5.6.
That was the third major earthquake we've noticed since we've been in Tulsa. The first happened at this same time last year. It happened in the morning and I was still in bed, but had just woken up. The bed shook and I thought one of the kids had crawled into bed with me, but there was no one there. I thought that was really weird, so I got up and Brittany was in the living room. She was freaking out, "Did you feel that earthquake! It was an EARTHQUAKE!"
They are a little scary, but pretty neat. Praise God we didn't have a massive one and no one was killed, like in so many places lately. We were definately very fortunate!
