Hundreds of residents gathered at the Prague Community Center to learn more about something that is fairly foreign to Oklahoma:  earthquakes.

The state's insurance commissioner, a representative from Oklahoma's geological survey, a structural engineer and politicians were on hand to answer questions from anyone who stepped up to the microphone.

Some people say they learned a lot from Thursday night's meeting, while others say it was just an opportunity for people to vent about damage that their property sustained.

The American Red Cross was at the meeting providing tips on how to survive an earthquake.

County and local governments told residents that officials are assessing the current damage in order to start a process of receiving help from FEMA.

Governor Mary Fallin has already declared states of emergencies in the hard-hit areas.
