About 20 minutes ago, we felt it at the Observer offices in Oak Lawn. Now, the United States Geological survey verifies that the mid-afternoon rumble was, in fact, an earthquake.

Internet users as far north as Lewisville and as far south as Grand Prairie have reported to the USGS that they felt the tremor.
Dallasites, including Angela Hunt's husband Paul Sims, are taking this very serious matter seriously.
