"I felt it" reports:
67501 / MMI IV (Light shaking): Was 4.4 mi from center and it seemed to last about 3-4 seconds and at about the 1/2 way point it was like a wash machine being so out of balance that ya got to sit on it so it wont walk away, only 3-4 times as strong with some sharp hard jolts that reminded me of having a very close lightning strike with the loud jolting kind of thunder.
2800 Dickens Dr, Hutchinson, KS (7.1 km NNE from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): I was awoken by a sudden sharp jolt and noise, shook windows, sounded like something hit the house and went away just as sudden.
Earthquakes in same area up to 1 year afterwards (likely aftershocks)
