    We live in Las Colinas. Heard a boom then the house shook like crazy. Though a bomb went off or plane crash.

    Felt it in NW Dallas…all my neighbors came outside. NEVER felt anything like that before! No damage that we’re aware of…

    I did too. We ran outside to see if the large oak in our front yard had fallen.

    First time I’ve experienced this. Fairly intense. Shook the house – 5 miles north of love field airport.
