"I felt it" reports:
Gladewater TX / MMI II (Very weak shaking): I had heard what sounded like a very strong bass sound, but then I felt a mild vibration under my foot. It was a very odd sensation and it kinda caught me by surprise. I go in the living room to ask my dad if he felt it too and he said no. Which was weird because the sound and vibration didn't seem like it was in one area to me. 2 days later he looks up the local news and fills me in on what had actually happened that night. I don't think i've ever enountered something like this when I was comin
North of Gladewater @ 474 Pineridge Road (Yew Road (3.8 km SSW from epicenter) [Map] / MMI IV (Light shaking): First thought sounded like something striking something or a sonic boom.
