Re: Earthquake jolts Oklahoma

^ It's not too bad; the University damage was on the exterior, but it's an old (well, by Oklahoma's standards) building so they're not happy about it.

They make homes pretty solid these days, so it's not like Turkey where people die and buildings collapse and whatnot when a 5.0 or above earthquake happens.

I do feel bad for the aforementioned dude whose house got a lot of damage, and the people whose foundations cracked/shifted on their homes. That stuff is almost impossible to fix, and even if you CAN fix it, it takes a long time to get done and costs money if you don't have insurance.
