    MMI IX (Violent shaking) ?
    Structures Many low standard buildings destroyed. Ordinary workmanship buildings heavily damaged, some collapse. Reinforced masonry or concrete buildings damaged, some with partial collapse. Buildings and bridges designed and built to resist earthquakes damaged in some cases, some with flexible frames seriously damaged.

    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.
