Oklahoma Earthquake: Twitter Users Report “Roaring” Noise

Posted by on November 14, 2011

A 5.6 magnitude earthquake hit Sparks, Oklahoma on Sunday, November 6, another in an odd series of quakes that have increased in number since February 2010, and the largest recorded earthquake in Oklahoma history.

Three sections of Route 62 buckled as a result, and the earthquake could be felt “in Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, northern Texas and some parts of Illinois and Wisconsin.”

What’s most interesting is that Twitter users in Oklahoma described a strange humming or “roaring” noise prior to the earthquake.

This could, perhaps, be noise caused by shifting plates and rock, but it brings to mind the growing number of reports of “roaring” and other strange noises throughout the world, some of which are highlighted in the following video:
