Earthquake

This morning we were awakened by our motorhome feeling like someone or thing was pushing it up and down, Lasted several seconds, then did it again.
Turns out it was from an earthquake on Oklahoma.
How many others have experienced this?

Live 50 miles from the epicenter, lasted about 3 minutes. Will be doing some tuck pointing next week in the stone work. It sounded like a train was coming before it hit.
We are loading up the MH and heading for the lake today.

We are not in Oklahoma, but in California we experience that quite often. The last time it was a 5.0 and the epicenter was about 2 miles from our house. It literally felt and sounded like someone picked up our house about 2 feet and dropped it. We got lucky and didn't have any damage, but we continued to get aftershocks for several hours. So we slept in our MH that night, as we keep it at our house. It was rocking all night. The MH is a great "Earthquake Kit" to have here in California.

Exclamation Thread Warning

Several posts were removed for being off-topic and injecting a political topic to the discussion, which is baiting to others...all prohibited acts.


An RV can be a "Life Boat" in these events.

Lived through the '89 Loma Prieta (7.3 quake). Those in RV's were safe and comfortable as long as their water and fuel lasted, when many were not so.

So now, we never park the RV for storage without full fuel and water tanks.

Safe travels

A quake in '99 sent our house into a up and down wave motion. I think it was because Hector spit on a sacred rock.

Same here. Lived in Salinas and from that day forth our RV was always packed and ready to go.

We had no power for three days and couldn't even buy gasoline because no one had power in the county. We all fill at half tank level now.

It is a good excuse to buy an RV in case the big one hits.

I imagine a lot of people there in the Midwest got a pretty good scare.
