      not a great way to wake up...bed shaking and floor rolling for 10-15 seconds exited on stairway from 4th floor of 8 in south end of Crucita....only one neighbor exited the building at the same time.
      No apparent damage (3 sets of closed bi-fold doors opened, but no obvious interior or exterior cracks in masonry observed) except to my sense of security

      I was going to bed that I felt I couldn't control my balance and I saw the apartment was shaking to some extent strong and I wanted to wake up my wife and my son and I had become fearful and afraid of a strong earthquake the same as iran-iroq border earthquake on yesterday.

        Hi, Armand here. Main problem is that i can't see the errors myself. Smartphone, desktops in alle browsers are just fine here. We will order a total review of the functionalities and visibility in the site very soon and hope that that way all issues will be solved. My gratitude for telling me this.

      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.
