Felt reports as received by "disaster-report"
Dale Scott from 1 mile south of wilburton, Ok: At 2:34 am Tuesday morning, Just laid down for bed and felt a light shaking of my home for about 1.5 seconds. Second quake felt in 6 months.
Jerry Rider from Eufaula, OK: The other Quakes shook my house from side to side. This latest one was more like a vibration. Maybe because I was closer to the epicenter. I'm not sure why.
Charlie Rowland from Center of Town of Pittsburg, OK: Awoke to a low rumble and light shaking which gradually increased to a moderate to strong shaking and louder rumble and then a loud crash, almost like a vehicle hitting a house or two railroad cars banging together extra fast. Then it gradually decreased to nothing. It seemed to last for an extended time but was probably actually only several seconds.
