CSW BREAKING: "Earthquake or Tremors" Reported in Platte County MO

At 11:06 p.m. Saturday night- the Platte County MO Emergency Communications Center was broadcasting an advisory over their frequencies that the center was getting "numerous calls of an earthquake or (earth) tremors" in that Northland KC-MO county.

Dispatch added that "there's been no reports of injuries or damage."

Police dispatch in Bonner Springs KS also reported "numerous calls" from people there.

At 10:53 p.m.- the USGS reports a "5.2" magnitude earthquake centered 44 miles east-northeast of Oklahoma City.

A short time later- the USGS upgraded the intensity of the Oklahoma quake to a "5.6" magnitude.

As of 11:30 p.m. CDT- news media sources in both Oklahoma City and Tulsa are not reporting any damage or injuries from what is now the strongest earthquake in Oklahoma state history.

The shaking locally is probably from that earthquake (not felt here at CSW).

I am sitting here watching a movie and and in a chair on a hardwood floor and I felt nothing.

Just saw on my FB page a guy in Platte City who said he felt nothing either.

My St Joe contact as well felt nothing.

Have called a guy in Paola who was standing on a concrete floor in his shop working on his hotrod and he felt nothing in fact said for once he didn't have radio on either and dog never made a whimper one and they claim animals feel what we can't.

I sometimes wonder if people really do feel these things. Or just thought they did.
