Did you feel the Oklahoma earthquake? Many in Kansas say they did. The shaking had many people sharing stories on social media sites Sunday.
The USGS website is reporting several different ones near Crescent, Oklahoma. The first happened at 1:37 a.m. It was reported as a 3.5 magnitude earthquake.
The second one was a 4.3 magnitude earthquake, happening at 1:51. A third one followed at 1:59 a.m. and was a 3.3 magnitude earthquake. And another 4.5 magnitude quake hit at 9:09 a.m.
The National Weather Service says the earthquakes were felt across much of eastern Kansas, including the Kansas City area.
"I didn't know if it was an aftershock or what," said Wichitan Darah Jewell.
Jewell was lying in bed Sunday morning, in her old town apartment, when she felt the earthquake.
"The whole thing started to sway back and forth and then the mirrors on either side of my room started to rattle from my walls," Jewell said. "It was a really strange feeling."
"We know what to do with tornados, we don't know what to do with earthquakes very much," said Wichitans Jim & Jan Unruh.
That's why Governor Sam Brownback put together a task force to study what's causing the recent seismic activity in Kansas, and develop a plan of action.
"I don't think there is any question that it is in every body's best interest to try to understand what is going on here as well as we can and then decide what the best response would be," said Task Force head Rex Buchanan.
Buchanan is working closely with experts in Oklahoma, because it is now second most seismically active state in the lower 48.

"It's a helpless feeling, you don't really know what is going to happen," Jewell said.
Jewell plans to pay more attention to all the earthquake activity after what she felt Sunday morning.
