MUSTANG, Okla. - A Mustang business was rattled by the earthquakes Tuesday morning.

The shop Heart Strings, Flowers and Gifts was stocked for Mother's Day.

Store employee Sheree Pruett said she felt the quakes at her house that morning but didn't expect the mess she found in the store.

"I didn't even think that until I walked into the door and saw the floor covered in glass," she said. "These are all of our Mother's Day vases that we were preparing to make arrangements for Mother's Day."

Around 35 vases were smashed into pieces on the ground.

Employees spent the day with buckets and brooms.

They don't have earthquake insurance and will have to foot the bill for the almost $1,000 in damage.

This time, Pruett said, they will reconsider the vases safekeeping.

"We may store our vases down low and away from glass," she said.
