    Felt it here in Cimarron. It shook the house pretty good!

    Didn’t feel the first reported trembling around 5:30, but just now felt the house shaking starting at 11:46 and ending at 11:47 on anatomical clock. House, bed and grandmother clock chiming, pulsing continued for a surprising time. It took us about 5 seconds or so to figure out what was going on. Pulsing seemed to last for a while. Wow, I wonder how strong it was…probably nothing compared to California. Our first quake.
