I’m all the way in Russell and I knew there was no thunder but my some was downstairs and came running saying the loud noise and shaking scared him. I wonder if anyone else felt it here.

Yes loud boom and windows rattled

We heard it. Sounded like an explosion

Just to let you know, they are getting ready to frack in the Flint Hills of Kansas and maybe push the Keystone pipeline threw Kansas. So it it is most probably linked to FRACKING, like in Oklahoma.
