  • Burlison - It woke me up and lasted maybe 15 seconds.
  • Henning, TN - Weak shaking
  • Blytheville - It was a quick shudder. It almost felt like the apartments were hit by a vehicle, but with no boom.
  • Keiser, Arkansas - ~ I woke up about 5am and I had let the dogs out and I too went out to smoke my morning cigarette and sitting on the bench and felt the ground kinda of rumble, the ground was vibrating a little. I was very curious like What was that ??? Went back in to watch a movie and at 7 am out the news on and Wow it was confirmed ......... An EarthQuake !!!! ~
  • blytheville arkansas - Awaken by brief shaking. It shook hard and loud enough that I thought someone had hit my house with a car and I ran outside to see. No damage.
  • concord - Light shaking
  • Manila , AR - Vibration felt in the floor for a couple of seconds followed by a bump the felt like a car had hit the house. No Damage at all.
  • Munford - It woke me up.
  • Hot Springs - Slight rumble woke my dogs upon the second floor.. in turn woke me up.. had to flip a brake back on after..
  • Bay arkansas - Shook my chair i was sitting in and something made noise in kitchen maybe glass
  • Osceola - Woke me up and knocked a couple of pictures off the wall. The shaking of the quake was up & down.
  • Millington - One jolt. Not really shaking per say
  • Paragould AR - It woke me up. Rattled doorknob of my room. Maybe 5 seconds of shaking. No damage. My husband felt it in another room.
  • Bartlett, TN - I\'m in Davies Plantation (Bartlett, TN, on the edge of Lakeland, TN). An earthquake woke me from my sleep and scared me around 5:15 a.m. I didn\'t know if it was an earthquake or a bomb - yikes! I wonder if it was felt here because our house backs up to natural gas lines (you can see a big strip of grass, like an airstrip, behind our house). I immediately looked up news and found none, so I was very perplexed. Thank you for this website. God bless you.
  • Millington - Woke up by mild shaking or trembling lasting about 5 seconds.
  • Lepanto, AR - Rumbling followed for two seconds after shelf of pictures were toppled to the floor which scared the dog and woke up our son. Until the news announcement of the earthquake the cat was blamed for knocking down all the pictures. I think the deep digging taking place on Highway 18 outside of Manila near Big Lake is the cause of the tremor. Friday the road crew was unearthing what appeared to be beyond 30 foot digs to drive bridge supports into the bed rock.
  • Paragould, AR - Light shaking
  • Memphis - Very weak shaking
  • Bartlett,TN - Had the window open and a slight breeze was coming through. Just laid back down. My headboard is against the outside wall. All of a sudden I heard and felt a powerful sound. It was really quick. I thought a tree had fallen. Sounded like it just missed the house. I got up to look but everything was just as peaceful as when I laid down. It was definitely a shock factor! I did not notice any damage.
  • Manila ark. - Moderate shaking
  • Bartlett\\\' TN - I also live in Davies plantation in Bartlett, TN. I definitely felt it and it was unmistakable. It was a sudden\\\' light jolt followed by a couple of seconds of vibration. I could also hear dishes rattling lightly.
  • Poplar Bluff, MO 63901 - Watching TV sometime after 5am when building shook. First thought: A vehicle or something hit building. Noticed no visible damage. First time knowingly experiencing an earthquake.
  • walcott Arkansas - woke me up from my sleep. sounded like someone slamed a door and stormed through the house. 5 seconds maybe? Never experienced an earthquake before and being woke from sleep, I didn\'t know what it was.
  • Humbolt, tn - door in house shaked
  • Manila - No damage, Mom felt it not me, said it sounded like someone had hit the door loudly. I’m assuming was like a bang.
