    1. 11/1/16 @ 11:28 p.m. Sitting at computer and the screen started shaking. It felt like someone heavily stomping in the next room. I noticed the time and became alert. The strong vibrations went on for several seconds. I immediately went to FB- social media, and numerous people were also reporting feeling this in the Tulsa area.
