EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Several damage reports have been made following Tuesday morning’s magnitude 4.3 earthquake in Edmond. 

For Dawne Sullivan, it was a rough way to wake up. 

“It was scary. It was a jolt.” Sullivan said. “It was almost like an explosion.” 

The sound she is talking about was the sound of her chimney being ripped from the wall and falling to her lawn. Sullivan says her family woke up to the house shaking. They went downstairs and heard a strange cracking sound. 

“We thought it was sleeting outside,” Sullivan recalled. “My husband looked outside and said it’s not sleeting.” 

The sound they were hearing was the window cracking. Outside, the family found what was left of the crumbled chimney lying on the ground.

A few miles away, Donna Miller of Edmond was looking at the huge crack left in her fireplace by the quake. 

“The main crack is right here,” she said pointing to the damage. “Then we’ve got that big one right there.”

The Millers also felt the shaking and heard the crash of their bathroom mirror. 

“It used to be a mirror,” Miller joked. “After the earthquake this morning and after the aftershock it just fell off the wall. It seems like it was probably mounted correctly but…”

But not well enough. Still, Miller says she’s not worried about seven years of bad luck. 

“The way I think about it, I didn’t do it, so this is not my bad luck. So I should be good,” she said.
