The earthquake’s epicenter was located eight miles northwest of Pawnee, 21 miles south, southeast of Ponca City, 22 miles north, northeast of Stillwater, 44 miles south Arkansas City, Kansas, and 73 miles north, northeast of Oklahoma City. It was about four miles deep.

I live 50 miles South of Oklahoma City and it was 'shake , rattle, and roll' time.     Really felt it ....one of the strongest one's we have felt in this area before.    When the floor shakes beneath you then it is a little concerning.          RUN...FORREST.....RUN

The fault that runs through the Midwest is supposedly supposed to "give" soon.  That  would affect a ton of states.   Since "earthquakes" are part of the sign of the last days, I imagine they will happen in places that they don't normally happen in (New York, Pennsylvania also have faults that could erupt soon).

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A record-tying earthquake in the edge of Oklahoma's key energy-producing areas rattled the Midwest from Illinois to the southwest part of Texas on Saturday, bringing fresh attention to the practice of disposing oil and gas field wastewater deep underground.


The United States Geological Survey said a 5.6 magnitude earthquake happened at 7:02 a.m. Saturday in north-central Oklahoma, on the fringe of an area where regulators had stepped in to limit wastewater disposal. That temblor matches a November 2011 quake in the same region.

 

An increase in magnitude 3.0 or greater earthquakes in Oklahoma has been linked to underground disposal of wastewater from oil and natural gas production.

 

The Oklahoma Corporation Commission, which since 2013 has asked wastewater-well owners to reduce disposal volumes in parts of the state, is requiring 37 wells in a 514 square-mile area around the epicenter of the earthquake to shut down within seven to 10 days because of previous connections between the injection of wastewater and earthquakes.

There was a conversation started previously that listed earthquakes but I think there were so many everyone gave up...

now it has escalated into areas that haven't seen earthquakes or at least haven't for a long period of time as well so definitely part of the final days. Weather is really getting worse in every place on earth in some way or another, the hurricane Hermine just hit several areas in the US as well as Colorado Springs storm, Japan earthquake and typhoon I believe, and Hawaii had 2 hurricanes simultaneously passing on both sides.

I keep thinking about our study lesson today a brother said "If you are overly attached to one of your belongings now then consider getting rid of it before we are in the GT so Satan doesn't use it as a tool to hold you back. 

Think about go bags and only necessities we can watch the drama "Walk by faith not by sight." because we have to be happy with leaving everything and just making it with our lives when the time comes.
