We felt the 5.6 Oklahoma earthquake down here in Plano, TX tonight (Nov. 5, 2011) at 10:53 PM. Plano is a satellite city in the Dallas Metroplex, about 25 miles north of downtown Dallas. Plano is almost directly due south of the epicenter in Oklahoma. At our house, a chandelier swayed, computer monitors vibrated noticeably back and forth horizontally, and in the kitchen, there was a popping noise that sounded as though there was air in the water lines under a kitchen cabinet. Our family of 3 was scattered throughout the house, and each of us noticed these things independently of one another. I was standing in the kitchen, and didn’t feel the floor move at all – only heard the odd popping sound that I’m now assuming was probably dishes rattling in the cabinet.
