We were about a mile from MacArthur High School at a red light. We thought the car behind us hit us until we realized that the car moved side to side and not forward. Freaky!

Felt in Coppell for about a second. My wife grew up in Japan and recognized it right away. Me being from Texas would have never known it was an earthquake.

It felt like the apartment building was going to collapse with the walls groaning and we live next to DFW.

I live off of esters and Rochelle... Me and the kids just so happen to leave the movies early and as soon as we got settled in the quake hit... It felt like something landed on the house and then shook it... It was then followed by another smaller one... Everyone on the street came outside to see what the feeling was... It was creepy!

I felt it in bed saturday night and thought a tree or fence fell down. My Beagle Flash soon afterwards came upstairs and jumped in bed shaking like a leaf on a tree!
