Oh darn, another Oklahoma M4.0 earthquake

I'm not in the mood for that whole place falling apart right now.  I have created a fictional bubble that nothing was going to happen there (cognitive therapy), and this earthquake was the pin.  :(

So, I looked at that solution first, and had a rough idea where it was.  I thought, that's weird, none of the fault planes are lining up with the main shear fault.  Perhaps I am totally wrong after all.  Then I looked at the location in detail.

Blah, in a totally new zone.  The mechanism relates to the stress relief of the thrust.  Still on course.

Update:  It was a 4.3 cut down to 4.0    Interesting.
