Re: Earthquake jolts Oklahoma

It did some real damage in and around the epicenter. There was a home whose chimney caved in on the roof, there were several homes whose foundations shifted and they got a lot of damage. St. Gregory's, which is about 25 miles from the epicenter, sustained a lot of damage to its buildings--look at the video and picture at the link, if you want:

I don't think any homes collapsed, and no one died. HOWEVER, a friend of mine is an insurance adjuster, and she told me that out of the three hundred homes that have called her with damage reports, only about 10 had earthquake insurance on their home insurance policy, which is a real shame; there has now been a huge rush of people buying earthquake insurance, which is only about $55 a year...which is so worth it.
