A Broken Arrow homeowner is picking up the pieces after Saturday night's quake caused a pieces of brick facade to fall into his driveway.

Corey Dittamore was inside with his family getting ready for bed when the quake struck. He described the quake like a "freight train coming through." Dittamore says things "began to shake really bad in the house." He says a picture frame fell off one of his walls and broke.

Dittamore was "shocked" to see the damage the quake caused to his garage. A roughly ten foot section of brick facade collapsed and fell into his driveway, narrowly missing two parked cars.

Neighbor, Bubba Fernandez was also surprised by the damage to his neighbor's garage He went onto say how surprised he was 'that there wasn't more damage in the neighborhood,' based on how long the quake lasted. Both Fernandez and Dittamore say the quake lasted at least sixty seconds.
