The strong, serious earthquake was felt in seven states and several aftershocks have been recorded.
At least one building sustained damage to an exterior wall. The area is barricaded and Sewell says a building inspector will take a look before people are allowed back inside. A barn fire was also reported north of town, but the mayor says that was electrical in nature and it's not clear if the earthquake was responsible.
One person was briefly hospitalized after sustaining injuries from a chimney collapse. Sheriff Mike Walters says the person was treated at the hospital and released.

  • Ft Worth - I was sleeping on the 17th floor of the Marriott in downtown Ft Worth when I awoke from the bed shaking around 7am. I got out of bed to look out the window and noticed the curtains swaying and heard building creek. The quake occurred around 7am and lasted for a couple of minutes.
  • Hartsburg - Woke up to suncatcher rattling on upstairs bedroom window. Do not know the time though.

When I got home to watch a taping of the OU- Houston football game, the screen blacked out at 11:15 am so I assumed it was an aftershock from the original earthquake.

  • Carbondale, KS - No damage found, one story house with full basement that sits just above a large in-ground rock shelf. Woke to what felt like our two largest dogs (60 & 35 lbs.) jumping on bed - but they weren't. Husband woke to see all 3 dogs sitting on floor staring at him as if so say "what the heck was that?" Have only felt one other quake - back in mid-60's in Topeka, Ks. - and it shook the whole house and made the paintings sway on the walls.

We wen through an earthquake in the Netherlands over 20 years ago, and it was the bed shaking that woke us up. Such a strange experience. It's the fracking, people.

There were minor cracks in a couple of rooms in the drywall. The handles on the dressers were clattering as they shook. And a couple minor articles fell from a dresser to the floor. The best I can describe what I felt would be to compare it to hitting some mild rapids on the river when rafting.
