I just experienced my first earthquake EVER!! I live in Wichita, Kansas and I felt an earthquake. According to Facebook, there was another one last night too that was felt across Oklahoma and around the Wichita area, but I felt nothing during that one. I definitely felt this one! The news said it was a 5.6 magnitude. My first instinct was to pray to God for safety. I had no idea what was going on. Kyle was in the bath so I grabbed my phone and jumped up to run to the bathroom while calling my dad to see if he and my mom felt it. They did.
Because I grew up in Kansas, I have not been taught how to react to an earthquake. I had no idea that you're supposed to hide under something sturdy. I just sat here on the couch... Hopefully we never experience one big enough to need something sturdy over my head. I will die.
P.S. I am thankful for the whole day of relaxation. I did nothing but clean my cabinets and cook. Life is good... God bless!!
